The Church of England is hoping to top more than 2,000 people visiting its marquee at this year’s Suffolk Show.

The two day event begins tomorrow, with Reverend Martin Seeley, Bishop of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese hoping to beat last year’s 2000 visitors to activities in its marquee.

“It is very good that the church can be involved every year, supporting this major two day event in the life of the region,” he said.

“It is an opportunity for us to show just some of the ways that Christians in our towns and villages right across Suffolk are helping their neighbours.

“We are looking forward to exceeding last year’s record 2000 visitors to our marquee.”
