Tatties In A Bucket Competition

Every year we run a competition to see who can grow the most (heaviest amount of) potatoes in a bucket! If you have entered this year please bring your bucket to the Church Hall for weighing before 11.00am on race day. 

The 2015 Tatties In A Bucket Winner set a new record by growing 1.369kg of potatoes! Well done! 



Design a Potato-Head

Our local schools take part in a design a potato head competition every year. Children create all sorts of weird and wacky characters! There are prizes for the best design in each year group.



Amusements and Attractions at the Finish Line! 

There is even fun to be had after the main races have finished! In the grounds of The White Hart there will be Stalls, Ice cream, Bouncy Castles and more!
