The flowers would be decorated by schools, nurseries and care homes, and would be assembled by the Town Ranger and ‘planted’ a week before the show.
Town centre manager Sandra Curties said the aim of the initiative was to help promote the town during the RHS show, in addition to the Floral Walk.
The flowers would be made from a central wooden disc and strong willow petals, and fixed to a wooden stem. The central disc will be the focus of decorating by the participating organisations.
Sandra added: “It would be a lovely community event, bringing generations of Knutsfordians together. At the flower show’s close the flowers would be delivered back to the organisations.
“Initial research among schools, pre-schools and care homes has been extremely positive and welcoming. It is envisaged that at least 20 flowers would be ‘planted’, with the potential for more.”
Sponsorship has been secured from a local business, and more are being sought. The cost of assembling 20 flowers is £131.
The town council’s Events Committee is being asked if it is happy for the project to go ahead as proposed.
