Is that a Potato Prize idea, Tonker? Don’t give it away if it is. (Sounds like a lot of effort too, & the comp is after c*ap, not caps.)

Well done to all participants
They were all brilliant and well thought out.
It would have been hard for me to pick a winner if I was a judge.
I really liked Hog-Money and Spec Tater .
In fact, I liked them all

I thought the Potato Prize went nicely, Cheshirecat.
My entry sadly didn’t make it, but it gave me a laugh creating it.

Ive just had another look on the Wigan Peers website, Joanne.
It seems like a very friendly place. And lots of helpful people on it
