ORGANISERS of this year's Suffolk Show are keeping their fingers crossed for a little more sunshine as the second day gets under way this morning.

Yesterday's overcast skies failed to dampen the spirits of the thousands of visitors who flocked to the county's top agricultural event.

But with the sun set to shine later on bosses are hoping even more people will flood through the gates.

Deputy show director Bee Kemball said she was looking forward to the day ahead but was keeping her fingers crossed for some brighter weather.

“The forecast is fantastic,” she said. “The sun is coming out later and it isn't cold outside, which makes a huge difference.

“Yesterday went very well. I was very pleased because there were no problems and everything went according to plan.

“There were hundreds of people still here well into the evening listening to the Abba tribute band.

“The sun came out and it was a very nice finish. I did manage to get into the food hall and it was still extremely busy and full, with lots of people continuing to buy into the early evening.”

Mrs Kemball said there was still plenty to do for today's visitors - and picked out the Flower and Garden Experience as a must see.

“It looked absolutely spectacular - the best I've ever seen it,” she said. “If people are coming today then they should make it top of their list.”

Other highlights include a visit from His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent, who will be handing out the long service awards to people who have worked in the agricultural industry for 30, 40 and 50 years.

There is also an exhibition of art work in the Farm in Anglia area by local school chidren with the theme of “Suffolk - One of England's finest bread baskets.”

Mrs Kemball continued: “There are also still lots of things going on in the rings. Later on today we have the heavy horse championship which is the pinnacle of the heavy horse calendar. I think we have more here than any other show.”
