Rotary Club Tallest Sunflower

The Rotary Club Tallest Sunflower competition has its winners with The tallest sunflower grown by Jane Chandler in Burton Overy.

Jane and her late husband Alan have been growing flowers and vegetables in their small cottage garden for many years. Alan would have been thrilled to see Jane’s magnificent specimen, standing over three metres tall. Jane will receive the 1st prize of £50. £30 and £20 will go to the second and third tallest, Freddie Thorpe and Ivan Jarvis, respectively. This event raised over £2000, which has gone to support LOROS and Rainbows. Thanks to all those who took part. The extra sunflowers brightened up many gardens and villages during the summer.
