Booths to host community flower show championing the best of the local community

In the spirit of a traditional flower and produce show, there are 13 floral installations.

Booths are gearing up to host their first community flower show to champion the best the local community has to offer.

In the spirit of a traditional flower and produce show, there are 13 floral installations, ranging from a sensory garden prepared by the mental health charity Lancashire Mind, a Cure Leukaemia “Sunflower Cycle,” a Women’s Institute Community Bench. There will also be displays of locally grown flowers.

Hesketh Bank Store Manager, Jenni Stancombe, said: “The ethos of Booths is to be at the heart of the community. This part of Lancashire is famous for its growers and gardeners. We thought it might be fun to host a Community Flower Show, gathering our charity partners, suppliers, growers and local groups to share some “green fingered” community spirit.”

"Lancashire Mind are delighted to be involved in the Booths Community Flower Show. We have chosen the Five Ways to Wellbeing as our garden theme. We want visitors to explore the five ways through nature and be inspired to look after their wellbeing in simple and enjoyable ways.

"Taking part in activities like this flower show covers all these wellbeing messages and it’s a great way to reach out to the local community,” said Emma Bateson from Lancashire Mind.

Cure Leukaemia are creating a “cycle” inspired installation decorated with locally grown sunflowers designed by Andrea Childs inspired by her daughter Beth. The cycle inspiration comes from the recent London to Paris Cycle ride completed by the team at Booths.

Ivan Merrell from Cure Leukaemia said: “Cure Leukaemia are enormously grateful for the support from Booths and the Community Flower Show is a great way to share the work of our fundraising teams in a way that is both engaging and inspiring.

"We’re looking forward to sharing the work of our charity and telling the story of “Our Beth” alongside our Charity Ambassador Andrea Childs, with shoppers as well as paying tribute to the cyclists from Booths who continue to raise funds for our work this summer.”
