FLOWER SHOW: Entries have to be staged after 8.30am and by 10.30am tomorrow, Saturday morning, at which point the marquee closes for judging until 1.30pm when it reopens for members of the society, and 1.45pm when the public are admitted, adults £2.50 and under 16s free.

The presentation of trophies is at 4.15pm followed by the drawing of the raffle. There will be a wide selection of stalls, with local interest and history, crafts, books, charities, plants, garden jumble etc.

The tea tent will be open all afternoon, as will the Horse and Groom. Ice creams may be had from the Stores. Car parking is at Stone House, by kind permission, and is sign posted. Warbleton Brass Band will provide the music.
