Suffolk’s community spirit and friendly nature on display at Trinity Park today
Suffolk’s new bishop said he was “overwhelmed” by the Suffolk Show during his first-ever visit to the premier event.
The Rt Rev Martin Seeley, who will be enthroned as Bishop of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocese at the cathedral in Bury St Edmunds next month, said he learnt a lot about Suffolk’s community spirit.
He said: “I have never been before and I have been overwhelmed at the scale and incredible quality of all the stands.
“There is a most extraordinary range of stands and stalls and I have been struck by how there is literally something for everyone.
“There is a huge range of people of all ages and backgrounds.
“I am looking forward to bringing my family here for day two. I imagine they will find plenty to enjoy, such as the crafts and military displays.
“I have been struck by how open and friendly people are in Suffolk, and I saw this again at the Suffolk Show.”
