TO MARK the harvest, Wokingham residents are being encouraged to get set and grow!

All Saints Church is holding a special GetGrowing contest to celebrate harvest, with judging taking place on Sunday, September 30. There are a range of categories to enter including biggest onions, marrows, tomatoes and pumpkins, the prettiest flower, the strangest vegetable and the yummiest cake. And it’s not just vegetables under consideration. Judges are also searching for the most interesting loaf, best homemade jam, best harvest themed potato and the ugliest apple. Children are also invited to take part with a special category for them. There is no charge for entry and you can enter as many categories as you wish. This is a fun contest and is not open to professional growers or food companies. Entries should be taken to The Cornerstone centre on Sunday, September 30 for 9am. Entries can be left to be eaten at the church’s harvest lunch following the service.
