51st ANNUAL FLOWER & VEGETABLE SHOW
Sutton Ex-Servicemen’s Club will hold its 51st Annual Flower & Vegetable Show on Sunday 3rd September 2017.
The Show will again take place, with the kind permission of Peter Barber, in a large marquee on Spooners Flats, Hollin Lane, Sutton.
It really is a great achievement for a village Show like ours to reach the fantastic “Golden Anniversary” landmark we did last year and as many of you will recall last year was to be my last as show secretary – but how can I walk away from something as magical as our wonderful show.
I’m sure that the majority of you will now be familiar with the Schedule. It is more or less the same as in previous years with just a few minor changes.
At the suggestion of the judges our “bunches” of radishes & spring onions now have minimum & maximum numbers and if you have a pumpkin it should now be staged in the any other vegetable class, as we’ve replaced this with “6 beans – not already mentioned in the schedule”.
“World Lemon Cheese Championship”, will Roger Lomas retain the world title or will we be crowning a new world champion on the afternoon of the show? We’re still looking for bottles of homemade lemonade but you can now also exhibit any other homemade tipple alongside it.
Robert Barnard – Show Secretary
