World Champion tattie grower - again

Well-known Gatehouse horticulturist Joe Proudlock has won the Scottish and the World Potato Championships for the second time in three years.

Mr Proudlock, of Birtwhistle Street, took top honours after growing a variety of tatties to the highest standard.

He is a regular prize winning exhibitor at flower and vegetable shows in the region and has now done the ‘double double’ having won both titles in 2009.
