    College gets the flags out for 2019 Suffolk Show

    A team of horticultural students are getting ready to fly the college flag as they put the finishing touches to a garden design ahead of the 2019 Suffolk Show.

    The learners from Easton and Otley College will be creating a series of mini designs based on flags from around the world.

    These smaller designs will then form one major garden that will be situated outside the main flower tent at Trinity Park at this year’s county show.

    Clay Rogers is the horticulture unit manager at the college. He said, “The students came up with the flag idea and they are really up for the challenge.”

    23 year old Hamish Monro-Smith is a level three student who is working on the design. The Bury St Edmunds resident, said, “We will be looking to impress Suffolk Show visitors. Last year we won a gold medal so hopefully we can do the same again this year.”

    In other areas of the show, farming students will be involved in livestock competitions and equine students will be helping to build show jumping courses.
