Vil­lage grow­ers turn on the style

Macclesfield Express - - SUTTON SHOW - KAREN BRIT­TON

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple turned out to see prized pump­kins, mar­vel­lous mar­rows and tempt­ing toma­toes at the Sut­ton vil­lage show.

Grow­ers and mak­ers showed off their cre­ations at the event or­gan­ised by Sut­ton Ex-Ser­vice­men’s Club 49th An­nual Flower and Veg­etable Show.

A mar­quee was erected on nearby land owned by Peter and Jenny Bar­ber on Spoon­ers Flats, Hollin Lane.

Nearly 200 peo­ple dis- played 1,124 ex­hibits. Ma­jor win­ners on the day in­cluded Robert Jack­son, Mar­shall Barnard and Nor­man Beech.

Robert Barnard, show sec­re­tary, said: “It was a re­ally great ef­fort for a vil­lage show mak­ing it much big­ger than some town shows. There was a great turnout on the day.

“The show was a tremen­dous suc­cess and en­joyed by ev­ery­one who ex­hib­ited or sim­ply at­tended.

“Flo­ral art and chil­dren’s sec­tions con­tinue to grow re­ally well - the imag­i­na­tion the chil­dren have is fan­tas­tic.”

Plans are un­der­way for the 50th show on Sun­day, Septem­ber 4, next year.

Robert said: “Next year’s show is the golden an­niver­sary so plans are un­der­way to make the event big­ger and bet­ter.”
