Mash up your ideas

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

YOUNG­STERS from across west Lon­don are be­ing asked to get cre­ative for a spud-tac­u­lar modelling com­pe­ti­tion.

In cel­e­bra­tion of the veg­etable, e-gar­den cen­tre Pot­ter and Rest, want to see chil­dren from Houn­slow and Hilling­don to Eal­ing and Ham­mer­smith and Ful­ham, come up with fun ideas trans­form­ing the potato into any­thing from an­i­mals to fa­mous faces.

To en­ter in the best look­ing potato con­test take a selfie with your model spud or get some­one to take the photo and send it in for a chance to win a £25 or £10 voucher.

The Uxbridge Gazette Se­ries Pot­ter and Rest, said: “To cel­e­brate the hum­ble spud we thought it would be a great idea to get chil­dren cre­at­ing their own mod­els out of the veg­etable.

“The pota­toes can be mod­elled into ab­so­lutely any­thing the chil­dren wish, whether it’s fa­mous faces or an­i­mals, the more cre­ative the bet­ter!

“It would be great to see mod­els made from pota­toes that chil­dren have grown in their gar­den too.”

Send your photo via hello@ pot­teran­ – the dead­line for en­tries is Fri­day – so get snap­ping.
