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.
