We are looking forward to taking part in the first Green Sundays event in Sudbury on 20th June.
We will be on Market Hill (St Peter's if wet) 10am-3pm with activities, giveaways, competition entry forms and advice.
To tie in with our Pride of Sudbury gardening competition we will be handing out lots of free plants to help residents with their entries.
After visiting the Make-Your-Own-Plant-Pot stand, head to us to try your hand at potting up a bee-friendly perennial or herb, free to take away afterwards.
Children aged 10 and under can claim their free sunflower seedling so they can take part in our Tallest Sunflower category (residents Sudbury & Cornard districts only). We will also be giving out lots of free grow-your-own plants, including tomatoes, potatoes, courgettes, cucumbers, sweet peppers and chilli peppers.
To raise funds for our work about town we will have a selection of plants grown by our volunteers available to buy too.

We want as many people as possible to enter this year's Pride of Sudbury competition, so to help everyone boost their confidence and gain their greenfingers we have produced a series of video tutorials.
Head to our Tips & Advice page, or our Facebook page, to watch the videos, which have been produced especially for us by sponsors Bridge Farm Plants.
Videos include Wildlife Friendly Gardening, Planting Hanging Baskets, Planting Containers & Pots, and a fun Sunflower Growing video for children.
Get watching, get inspired ... and get entering our competition!
Sudbury in Bloom is encouraging everyone to get out in the garden with the launch of the Sudbury in Bloom 2021 resident and business floral competition 'Pride of Sudbury' on June 11th.
The Pride of Sudbury competition is operated and run by Sudbury in Bloom for the residents of Sudbury and local districts.
It offers a unique opportunity for residents and local organisations to work together with the Town Council to improve our town and local environment.
Each category will be judged in terms of design, floral content, imagination and the inclusion of wildlife and conservation.
You can enter online by clicking here or pick up an entry form from Sudbury Town Hall in Gaol Lane.
The closing date for the competition is Friday July 16th. There is a later closing date for the Childrens’ Sunflower Competition which is Friday September 3rd
Prizes are being sponsored by local businesses and there are still opportunities for sponsorship through Sudbury in Bloom - click here to contact us
The presentation will be at the Town Hall subject to any ongoing restrictions applying at the time.
This year we are hoping to be able to Judge on site but we will ask entrants to keep their distance!
