Stunning floral displays were showcased at the Rush Green Community Centre as dozens of people competed for first place at their annual flower show.

The Rush Green Community Association’s (RGCA) annual floral art show saw a number of contestants show off their creativity and flower arranging skills on Saturday, June 9.

Rose Wilson, committee member at RGCA told the Recorder: “The day went very well. You look at the displays and you think - I wish I could do that.

“They come out with such beautiful displays and there were lots of different themes, such as In the Garden and Round the Fireplace.”
