Update re Potato Day 2019

This annual event has been organised jointly by Down to Earth and Transition Stroud and it will be the 9th Stroud Potato Day in 2019.  It is run by volunteers and the seed potatoes come from Dundry Nurseries, Nr Shurdington, the owner, Chris Evans is a great supporter of community and expert on potatoes. 

Changes have been forced upon Potato Day by the refurbishment of Merrywalks Shopping Mall - which had been the event's home from the start. This means that neither the date nor the location of Potato Day 2019 are currently settled. It has been confirmed that we cannot use Merrywalks! We are now provisionally saying: Stroud Potato Day, 2019. On the First Weekend of February with Venue TBC. If anyone has any ideas of where we can go, that would be great.
