Middlecombe Nursery, in Wrington Road, has set up the creative display in its greenhouse.

The pumpkins, on show, have been carved by local schools, groups, businesses and nursery children.

The event started on Thursday and will end on Thursday (October 31).

Money raised from the event will go towards the Yatton and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group.

She said: "We've been overwhelmed with the support for our fundraising efforts.
