SOUTHPORT FLOWER SHOW
Photographs by Patrick Trollope Report By Dionne

THE Southport Flower Show attracts over 10,000 visitors each year, and is the UK independent flower show. It first started in 1924 it stands in 34 acres of Victorian Park close to the town next to the seaside. The theme for this year’s Flower Show was "The World of Travel". Set over 4 days, 18 August to 21 August, it had everything you could imagine or think of for gardening. There was a huge selection of exhibits, gardening, gadgets, accessories and sculptures.   The Southport Flower show this year had everything for you to add style and comfort and even the unusual to life in the outdoors.

What ever you need there is something for everyone, if you where looking for a gift there was a huge selection in the Rural Arts tent together with floral displays, demonstrations and practical advice. The show which sponsored the RNLI this year has again been a great success.   When asked about the show here is what a few of the public had to say. ”I enjoy visiting the stalls with all the handcrafted things as it has stuff you could not buy from a normal everyday Garden Centre” said Mr and Mrs Lawton from Birkenhead. People come from everywhere to enjoy the flower show, and even treat it as a holiday. “I usually stay for 2 days in Southport as it is so huge with a lot to see, we can take our time to enjoy everything” commented Mr Walton from South Wales.

There where also a huge array of celebrities attending, from David Dickinson, who opened the show from the bandstand to Roddy Llewellyn, Tyrone Dobbs (Allan Halsall) and Maria Sutherland (Samia Ghadie) from Coronation Street, who accepted a red rose which is named after Coronation Street. Prof David Belamy was also there to judge and help the Brownies and Cubs, both of them from Ainsdale, design a garden after they beat 700 other entries for the competition. They where both given 1˝ hour to complete the garden which they designed by themselves, before David Belamy announced the winner....  find out what happened next week...
