The theme for this year’s Flower Show and Tea is Chester Gems, and the organizing committee has created some very imaginative scenarios in their descriptions of the 13 sectors of the Design class. Among the headings used to describe the particulars of compositions and arrangements are: Go antiquing in Chester; Tee off at the Chester Golf Club; Celebrate the restoration of historic Lordly House; and Take a saltwater dip in Chester’s Lido pool.
Full details concerning the regulations for all entries – whether as horticultural specimens or in the design classes – as well as information about trophy competitions, childrens’ classes and more, can be found by clicking on the link at the right side of this column (see the sidebar: Flower Show Schedule).
The Show will be open from 1:30 to 5:30 PM, at the Chester Legion. Members and non-members alike are invited to participate in the floral competitions and everyone is welcome to enjoy the scrumptious tea that will be served from 2 to 4 PM. Admission to the event is $7 for adults and $3 for children under 16.
