The odd-shaped squashes are being grown at a farm shop near Pontefract, to celebrate Halloween and their own pumpkin festival. But the funny-looking pumpkins also have a serious message, as they are to be used to promote an anti-bullying message.
Nick-named Spookley _– the square pumpkin in a round pumpkin world – was the creation of the American writer Joe Troiano.
Over in America the character Spookley is one of the best-known mascots for anti-bullying.
Heather Copley, of Copley farms near Pontefract, is the first to bring Spookley and the anti-bullying message to the UK.
