Traders get bright and beautiful


Businesses in Storrington centre are automatically entered in to the two business categories of our local competition: Best Business External Display and Best Business Window Display. The theme this year, in line with the village theme is ‘bright and beautiful’.

Our business categories are kindly sponsored by Design at 32 and Storrington Horticultural Society.

In previous years the winners have been decided by public vote, however this year we have invited the Reverend Kathryn Windslow to judge these categories and she will be doing this at some time during the month of July.

The competition winners will be announced at our awards ceremony in September held at Squires Garden Centre, Washington.

Young people join Storrington in Bloom effort


Storrington is preparing to welcome the judges from South & South East in Bloom tomorrow – our volunteers have been busy all year sprucing up the village, including another clean up event which took place on 3rd July. Thank you to everyone that lent a hand.


First School Mural  Rydon flags

This week the efforts of our young people have become visible with the arrival of the flags designed by the students at Rydon Community College, the brightly coloured mural celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday painted by children at Storrington First School and the 10 ‘bright and beautiful’ themed wheelbarrows prepared and planted by local youth groups.

Judging for the Storrington in Bloom local competitions is underway and we look forward to announcing the winners at our awards ceremony in September.

With thanks to our sponsors

And a BIG thanks to all our volunteers and local businesses without whom none of this would be possible.
