Spud fans have smashing time in Mold celebrating 'Potato Day'


POTATO enthusiasts had their chips as they flocked to Mold to celebrate the humble spud.

The town centre played host to 'Potato Day' on Saturday as crowds flocked to the Daniel Owen Centre for all things spud related. It was organised by Flint Share, a volunteer run social enterprise which produces organically grown food with and for its members.

The enterprise began in 2011, and Peter Brownhill, one of the organisers said the Potato Day event was one of the most successful yet.

"Usually we host the day at St Mary's Church in Mold, but this year it clashed with the farmers market so we moved to the Daniel Owen Centre", he said.

"We hosted coffee and cake in the morning and the event was well attended considering it was the first time we had been there, and we have been going for about seven years now.

The 'Potato Day' event was supported by Mold Town Council and Cittaslow Mold.
