Green-fingered enthusiasts are once again being called upon to enter the annual Great St. Florence Potato Challenge.

Pre-registration opened on February 1, and runs until Saturday, February 26, for participants to enter the Challenge for £5 (child) or £10 (adult) per bucket and seed potatoes.

All proceeds are in aid of St. Florence Village Church. Potatoes and buckets will be available to collect from St. Florence Church on Saturday, March 5, between 9 and 11 am.

Contestants then compete to grow their potatoes ahead of the Grand Weigh in on Saturday, July 9.

The potato challenge, now in its third year, has been sponsored by Birt & Co of Tenby, who have provided the buckets; Walter Simon who is a grower for Puffin Produce, who has supplied the seed potatoes; and Puffin Produce who have donated prizes; as well as the Rees family who have sponsored the Rosettes.

To enter the challenge, participants are asked to drop off their contact and entry details in an envelope to Potato Challenge C/O J Close, 28 Flemish Close or email [email protected] for further information.
