Brazil-liant win for floral champions

Have your say

Four green-fingered Sheffield residents have scooped a top honour at a national flower show.

Sheffield Floral Club took home a gold award at the Southport Flower Show for their display on the theme of Brazil.

Members Josie Huton, Anne Wad, Susan Smith and Ian Buxton won the award in the North Midlands Area display category.

Their entry, entitled Brazil The Rainforest, was praised for its quality, with show spokesman Ghislaine Fletcher saying: “It was a very, very high standard at the show.

“Congratulations to the team on their outstanding display.

“It obtained a gold medal which means it was up to a fantastic standard.”

Sheffield Floral Club meets on the first Monday of every month at Sheffield City Hall from 7.30pm.
