Glo­ri­ous spring blooms make daz­zling dis­play

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS - KAREN BRITTON

SPRING was in the air when Bolling­ton and District Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety held their lat­est show.

There was a wide va­ri­ety of flowers, plants and hand­i­crafts on dis­play at the 51st Spring Show in Bolling­ton Civic Hall.

Among the vis­i­tors were res­i­dents from Inger­s­ley Court care home.

Joyce Bur­ton, sec­re­tary, said: “This is al­ways my favourite show as it so clearly wel­comes spring with the ex­quis­ite scent of the hy­acinths as you en­ter the hall and the blind­ingly bright yel­low ar­rays of daf­fodils.

“The show was very well at­tended and we were de­lighted to wel­come some of the res­i­dents from Inger­s­ley Court who thor­oughly en­joyed their af­ter­noon.”

There were tro­phies in var­i­ous cat­e­gories and An­dree Fry was a big win­ner on the day. Sam Wain­wright took the cup home in the chil­dren’s sec­tion.

Chair­man Wendy Stod­dart opened the prize giv- ing and handed pro­ceed­ings to Bolling­ton mayor Al­lan Wil­liams, who said: “Who would have thought that a young lad of 14 leav­ing school who joined Sand­bach Coun­cil as a gar­dener would end up as Bolling­ton Mayor giv­ing prizes?

“I’m de­lighted that there is so much here to see.”
