Charity is the Winner as Bedfordshire Light Blues Take on the Potato Race

The Masters’ Elect of Mercury 7289 and Bedford Castle 6124 went head-to-head on Sunday 11 June when they entered the Annual Flitton Potato Race.

Brothers Richard Reynolds & Chris Compton each lead a team in the Adult Team Relay category where each member had to carry a 20Kg sack of potatoes for a quarter of a mile.

The teams finished, very respectably, in second & fourth place with Mercury well ahead of Bedford Castle whose “baton” exchange method left a lot to be desired.!

Of course, the main winner was the Bedfordshire 2026 Festival where all the money raised will be donated. It’s not too late to show your support for this great effort by donating here.
