SHS President feels the flower power
The sunflowers were commissioned by three long-established Shrewsbury businesses – Balfours Property Professionals, Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors and ourselves - Morris & Company as a fitting display in honour of the Show. The structure with its cut out flower faces allows for posing for some suitably floral selfies and photos to get into the spirit of Shrewsbury’s famous summer event.
The sunflowers were created by family-run JDS Steelworks from Church Stretton who specialise in fabrication and bespoke items and who stepped up to the plate with the floral brief.
Robin Morris, our chairman, commented: “We all felt this was a great way to begin our Flower Show celebrations setting the tone for the exquisite real blooms on display in a few days’ time inside the Show’s floral marquees. In my role as this year’s President of the Shropshire Horticultural Society, I am very much looking forward to welcoming devotees to the Show as well as many new visitors to marvel at the wonderful exhibits on display and the wealth of other activities and attractions which make our Show unique.”
In the meantime, the public are encouraged to come along and have some fun with the iron sunflowers located in The Square and treat themselves to free packs of sunflower seeds available from Balfours Estate Agents just behind the display.
Shrewsbury Museum and its popular Stop Café have welcomed the arrival of the distinctive sunflowers outside their front doors and will be ensuring safe night-time storage of the unique items.Back to news
