Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

COM­PETI­TORS are tend­ing their veg­eta­bles, stok­ing the ovens and get­ting their cre­ative juices flow­ing for Sut­ton’s an­nual show.

The date for the 49th Sut­ton Ex-Ser­vice­man’s An­nual Flower and Veg­etable Show has been set for Sun­day, Septem­ber 6, and vil­lagers are en­cour­aged to show off their tal­ents and en­ter a class, with the an­nual scare­crow com­pe­ti­tion set to be as com­pet­i­tive as ever.

And for the first time, bud­ding artists can also en­ter a paint­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Robert Barnard, show sec­re­tary, said:“The Show re­ally is a friendly vil­lage event, and is open to ev­ery­one so please try and take part. Let’s hope the sun shines, the vil­lage turns out and we have a won­der­ful day.

“We have three new tro­phies to be won this year – that takes the num­ber of tro­phies up for grabs to a stun­ning forty.

“Af­ter a sim­ply out­stand­ing show last year, which saw us at­tract an un­be­liev­able 1,281 ex­hibits from 213 ex­hibitors – re­al­is­ti­cally what can we ex­pect this year?”

He added: “The scare­crow com­pe­ti­tion will again take place, please spread the word and try to have a go; it would be su­perb if this could con­tinue to grow.

“This year, like last year, will be an open com­pe­ti­tion so you can cre­ate a ‘crow’ to re­sem­ble what­ever you want and you’ll find full de­tails later in the sched­ule.”

The show will again take place, with the per­mis­sion of Peter and Jenny Bar­ber in a mar­quee on Spoon­ers Flats, Hollin Lane, Sut­ton.

The mar­quee will be open to the public from 2.30pm.

This year’s event is be­ing spon­sored by Jobling Gowler So­lic­i­tors, in Mac­cles­field, which is host­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion with do­na­tions from the sales go­ing to the Ex-Ser­vice­men’s event.

They are also spon­sor­ing the new art cat­e­gory ‘All Thing Bright and Beau­ti­ful’.

The ex­hi­bi­tion ‘Flora’ is open to the public ev­ery Mon­day- Fri­day be­tween 9:30am and 4:30pm, un­til Septem­ber 25.

En­trance is free.
