Garden of roses

As mentioned above, the Sutton and District Spring Show will be on Sunday 3rd April 2022.

It has been another rather wet and mild winter which the spring flowers seem to enjoy so there should be lots to enter, but the Show is for everyone, not just the gardeners!

There are novice classes in both handicrafts and floral art and there is a ‘men only’ class again in this section as well as classes for artists, photographers and cooks. We are also very keen to get the juniors joining in the fun.

Entries need to be posted in the ‘Show Box’ at Hurst Cottage by 6pm on Friday 1st April and staged on the day by 10.45 am.

Entry forms can be found in our Annual Programme that was distributed with the March edition of the Village News.  If you need one and don’t have a copy please contact Judy Seers – 01798 869765
