Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

COM­PETI­TORS have been tend­ing their veg­eta­bles and fin­ish­ing their artis­tic cre­ations for Sut­ton’s an­nual show.

The 49th Sut­ton Ex-Ser­vice­men’s An­nual Flower and Veg­etable Show is com­ing up this Sun­day and vil­lagers will show off their tal­ents and en­ter a va­ri­ety of classes, 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. Let’s hope the sun shines, the vil­lage turns out and we have a won­der­ful day.

“The scare­crow com­pe­ti­tion will again take place. It would be su­perb if this could con­tinue to grow.”

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.
