DISPLAYS WERE AMAZING
ON Saturday I visited the wonderful flower festival at the Air Raid Shelters.
Congratulations to all the talented flower arrangers for a wonderful and inspirational display.
It wasn’t just the arrangements that were breathtaking but the story the displays told was informative and thought provoking.
All the displays depicted a time in our history and if I highlight certain ones it does not lessen the impact of the rest – but the Dambusters display was such an insight to the bouncing bombs and when I visited, the arrangers were putting in more gypsophila to depict more water splashes at the dam.
The houses on fire in Stockport again had great insight to show the red embers collecting on the ground, one experienced the dangers by just looking at this display.
The VE Day was a great celebration and the trifle with the cream on top denoted by the white flowers and roses for the cherries was a joy.
I could make a comment about each of the displays but as there was nearly 30 it would take up too much of this column.
But my last comment must be the driftwood painted silver to represent the aircraft that were not only made in Stockport but became the turning point in the war at the Battle of Britain. Muriel Gray, Newlyn Close, Hazel Grove
