Thrive’s summer flower show takes place at Beech Hill

The sun shone down on Thrive’s annual flower show last week at Beech Hill, near Reading, which once again featured a display of beautiful floral displays, creative collections of vegetables and delicious cakes.

Judges had a tough time picking winners from 15 classes, which included a summer bouquet in a vase, five sweet peas, a decorated pot, miniature garden in a seed tray, and new for this year – stick people.

Entries came from the client gardeners at Thrive in Beech Hill and the charity’s Birmingham centre, along with local care homes and special schools in the area.

Volunteers manned a number of stalls including a tombola, treasure hunt, golf and hook a duck.

There were a wide variety of plants for sale which included a number of herb hanging baskets planted by the client gardeners.

Medals were presented by Thrive chair of trustees, Faith Ramsay, who said the flower show was a wonderful occasion, bringing people together and encouraging gardeners to show their skills: “It’s always so difficult to judge, the standard gets better every year and the effort that goes into creating the entries is brilliant. I’m looking forward to next year already!”

Thrive’s gardens are looking stunning and will open three times over the coming months for visitors to enjoy.

You can visit between 2pm and 4pm on Thursday July 27, Tuesday August 15 and Wednesday September 20.

Entrance is free but donations are welcome. There will be refreshments on offer, tea and cakes and plant sales.
