HORTICULTURAL SHOW: The Early Summer Show of the Cuckmere Valley Horticultural Society will be open from 1pm to 5.30pm at the War Memorial Hall tomorrow, June 13. The local gardeners always provide a good show of flowers, fruit and vegetables with some imaginative entries in the Decorative, Children’s, Photographic and Painting classes.

SUSSEX DAY: This will be celebrated in Alfriston on June 14. Music and dance will start in the Square at 11.15am and more activities will continue on The Tye from noon till 4pm.

FLOWER FESTIVAL: The Litlington Flower Festival runs from June 19 to 22, 10am to 5.30pm at the Church of St Michael the Archangel. There will be all day refreshments and assorted stalls and free parking (for sat nav directions BN26 5RA). The theme of this year’s displays is Past and Present. I can vouch from past shows these floral displays have been quite lovely.

RATHFINNY: Rathfinny reached a milestone last week and bottled their first wine. To avoid confusion with Rathfinny being a sparkling wine producer this first wine is a still wine to be known under the label Cradle Valley. The first Sussex Sparkling wine will be bottled in a few week’s time. It is a Blanc de Blanc (100 percent Chardonnay) to be released in late 2017/early 2018.
