Spud in a bucket con­test on again

Bush Telegraph - - EXPLORE PAHIATUA - By STEVE CARLE´

The Spud in a Bucket com­pe­ti­tion is back on.

Col­lect your free seed spuds and bucket from Help-n-Hand at 42 Main Street, Pahiatua be­tween Novem­ber 1-8.

Weigh-in will be on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 9 with age group and nov­elty prizes.

De­spite the to­tal hos­ing ban last year, cou­pled with un­pre­dictable weather, peo­ple made the most of it with the Em­mer­son fam­ily say­ing they used re­cy­cled bath wa­ter to wa­ter their pota­toes.

This proved to be a win­ning method with Mark and Ryan gain­ing awards on the day.

This event is a great way for fam­i­lies to en­gage in the com­mu­nity and spend qual­ity time as a fam­ily while pass­ing on ba­sic life skills to their chil­dren.

A good ex­am­ple was to see three gen­er­a­tions from the Moyni­han fam­ily sup­port­ing each other with their en­tries.
