Knutsford floral scheme planned for RHS Show at Tatton Park
Local schools, care homes and pre-schools are planning a special floral initiative in the run-up to the RHS Show at Tatton Park.
Knutsford Town Council is planning to create a ‘meadow’ of wooden flowers and ‘plant’ them at Wallwood – a woodland area near the entrance to Tatton Park which is owned and managed by the town council – in the run up to the show so that they will be visible throughout the show.
The council are seeking sponsorship of £270 for the event as the Events Committee does not have any surplus budget for this initiative
“The annual RHS Show will soon be upon us, and as a town we need to be constantly looking at ways of promoting Knutsford and engaging the community during this event,” said town centre manager Sandra Curties. “At the flower show’s close the flowers would be delivered back to the organisation. Initial research among schools, pre-schools and care homes has been extremely positive and welcoming.”
Each flower will have a plaque detailing who prepared the flyer, and it is envisaged that the Mayor would open the ‘meadow’.
