Success for Flowers in Wallwood local community project

Flowers In Wallwood Complete 800 Wide

Eleven Team Eleven News

Fantastic to see the completion of the ‘Flowers in Wallwood’ project organised by Knutsford Town Council to coincide with the RHS Flower Show and Knutsford In Bloom.

As one of the sponsors we were honoured to take part in the final photoshoot and meet the children who created such a beautiful display just across the road from our offices.

20 unique flowers were created for the project, each decorated either by a nursery or primary school class from each Knutsford school and nursery as well as a number of schools and nurseries from local towns. The flowers were made from wooden planks and discs, and willow was used to create the leaves.

Knutsford Town Ranger Bob put together the flowers for the children to decorate.

A total of 21 local schools and nurseries took just over a month to produce the flowers, decorated according to this year’s RHS theme of green initiatives, recycling and protecting wildlife.

Most of the flowers had eco messages and were either decorated using sustainable, recyclable materials or using plastic bottles and sweet wrappers to convey important messages about going green and conserving the environment.

The flowers will stay on display in Wallwood throughout the summer until the schools re-open.
