IT IS the return of a day when all things potato are celebrated.

Hampshire Potato Day is returning at the end of the month for green-fingered residents to get their hands on potatoes and seeds of all kinds at Testbourne Community School.

Chris Bird, from Sparsholt College, will be delivering a talk and Alan Wilson, author of The People’s Potatoes, will be presenting his new book while, as always, there will be activities and a free potato for children who attend.

More than 100 varieties of potato will be on display, the largest for any one place in the UK.

The event will run from 10am-3pm on January 27 and 28 with £2 entry.
