Wet but wonderful
About 8,000 people enjoyed an amazing array of displays at the award-winning Chorley Flower Show. Visitors from across the North West and beyond descended upon Astley Park to see the country’s top exhibitors and enjoy a great day out.
Famous faces dropped by to take a look around with comedian Dave Spikey dropping in to support the popular show that attracted exhibitors from as far away as Cornwall.
Councillor Alistair Bradley, Leader of Chorley Council, said: ‘It was another fantastic show with so many people commenting on how much they enjoyed it with lots of first-time visitors who said they were so impressed with Chorley that they will be coming back.
‘We had some really wet weather with forecasters saying about half a month’s rainfall fell in a day but it didn’t stop people coming to support the show and I’d like to thank everyone who came along.’
