Glorious start to last day of show

THE last day of this year’s Suffolk Show is off to a fantastic start.

The sun is shining and there is not a cloud to be seen over Trinity Park in Ipswich.

Tens of thousands of visitors flooded through the gates yesterday and organisers are hoping the fine weather will continue to bring people out in force.

It promises to be another fun packed day with a number of activities on the agenda.

The livestock competitions have already started while later on there will be a coaching parade, horn blowing contest and heavy horse obstacle driving.

There will also be displays from Mick Blackwell’s Balck Belt Academy and Ipswich Cheer Extreme street dance and hip hop.
