Kirkby Flower Show

A FLOWER show has been hailed as a big success.

Kirkby and District Horticultural Society held its 131st annual exhibition at Burlington C of E School in School Road, Kirkby, on Saturday.

The event featured around 120 competition classes for categories ranging from best hanging basket to best children’s handwriting.

Vice president of the society, Freddie Wayles, said: “This year’s exhibition went very well. It was a beautiful day and obviously encouraged people to have a walk out.”

Mr Wayles, whose mother was previously involved with the exhibition, said the poor gardening weather had not seriously affected the standard of entries.

He said: “It was a difficult year for gardeners and all the rain we have had recently can damage plants.

“The standard of entries was very good though, we only had a few classes without entries.

“It’s very heartening we can keep going, I hope it will continue beyond my day.”
