Annual Potato Growing Competition

Over the past few weeks, children in year 4 have been taking part in the annual Potato Growing Competition. The Competition is led by Torrington in Bloom in partnership with RHS Garden Rosemoor. Each child’s crop was taken away and weighed and the prize giving presentation took place on 16th July.

The presentation was led by Cllr N. Stark, along with Mayor of Torrington, Di Davey and Chair of Torrington in Bloom, Cherry Hammon. Di Davey commented, “It was refreshing to see the enthusiasm and pride the children had for this competition, it also gave them an educational opportunity to learn about the history of the potato.”

The Results

Winning gold, with a bumper crop of 2605 grams of potatoes, was James P.
Winning silver, with a crop of 1675 grams, was Henry S.
Winning bronze, with a crop of 1644 grams, was Macy G.

There was also a special award for the largest single potato grown. The winner was Thomas S. with one single potato weighing 348 grams.
