Visitors to Sunday’s South Suffolk Show will be guided around the showground by a programme decorated by a four-year-old artist.

The show at Ampton Racecourse near Ixworth asked pupils at St Edmund’s Catholic Primary School, Bury St Edmunds, to design a cover for the programme.

The picture chosen was by Bernardo Tem Tem Sousa and shows a blue horse and rider and a tractor and red trailer (or it might be a quad bike).

Committee member Aaran Ellis said: We had 60 entries and Bernardo’s was the best. It’s a very happy little picture.”

This year, the show has introduced a trail for children, sponsored by Cherry Trees Montessori School, where youngsters aim to collect 10 stamps around the show to be entered into a draw for a family ticket next year.

Gates open at 8.30am for the show which promises a ‘traditional, rural day out’ with craft marquee, food hall, countryside area, vintage farm machinery, trade stands and horse and livestock classes.
