Well, what a weekend. After a week of record breaking heat when it came to the weekend the temperature dropped and the rain came but it didn’t dampen the spirit of the people of Chorley who came down to Astley Park in their droves for the Chorley Flower Show.
We were there both days meeting a greeting people on our Friends of Astley Park stand, giving out information on the projects we have worked on in the park, looking to gain new members and selling raffle tickets for the beautiful, contemporary, floral painting that was done and donated by one of our members.
The draw took place in the main exhibitors marquee at 4pm on Sunday and was performed by none other than Martin Fish, experienced gardening consultant, media personality and writer. The name drawn out was Judith Schmitz so congratulations, the painting is yours to keep.
Finally we would like to thank everyone who took time to come a visit us during the show, to all the exhibitors that made the show what it was and to Chorley Council for organising and staging such a great event, roll on next year.
