Good fun for Chesterfield potato lovers

Have your say

POTATOES took centre stage at an annual celebration.

More than 30 varieties were on offer at a community group’s Potato Day.

Transition Chesterfield pressed ahead with the event in the town centre’s The Pavements despite bad weather.

Colin Harrison, of Transition Chesterfield, said: “We still had quite a few passing customers, and nearly all of the pre-orders – more than 90 of them – were collected, which says something about the hardiness and determination of gardeners.”
