County celebrates the harvest...

County celebrates the harvest


On Sunday 13 October Angel Hill, Bury St Edmunds, will be alive with the aromas and tastes of Suffolk as a Farmers’ market takes place to mark the annual Suffolk Harvest Festival.


Stalls such as Pepperbellies Chillis, Simply Home Bake, Hazelwood Nurseries, Leigh Doy Cheeses, The Friendly Loaf and Hubbard Pork will provide the perfect chance to stock up on some great local products.


Then at 3.30 pm the annual harvest service takes place in St Edmundsbury Cathedral. All are welcome to this wonderful occasion at which thanks are given for the Suffolk harvest. The Cathedral is filled with displays of flowers and produce.


During the service the Suffolk Agricultural Association’s Long Service Awards will be presented to those who have devoted many years to the industry in recognition of their dedication and hard work. Don’t miss the display of sheep created by Suffolk school children.


The speaker will be Professor Ian Crute, Chief Scientist of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board. Anna Hill, of BBC Radio 4, will interview Tim Jenkins of the Fishermen’s Mission. During the service a collection will be taken for the work of The Addington Fund.


Suffolk Harvest Festival is organised in conjunction with the Suffolk Agricultural Association, the National Farmers’ Union (NFU), St Edmundsbury Borough Council and the Country Land and Business Association (CLA).


Prior to the service (12.30 for 1 pm) a lunch is served in the Athenaeum. Tickets cost £20 and are available on a first come, first served basis. Following the service tea is available priced £3. Tickets for both these events must be pre-booked by contacting Mrs Pat Jewitt, Dean’s Secretary on 01284 748722 or
