Flowers in tribute to go on display at Shugborough Hall
Beautiful handmade forget-me-nots will soon form part of a huge display at Shugborough Hall – for those wishing to remember lost loved ones.
Charity Katharine House Hospice has launched the project to create a huge sea of colour in the grounds of the Staffordshire National Trust site.
The wrought iron flowers, coloured yellow and blue, are available to purchase so people can dedicate them to someone they wish to pay tribute to.
For seven days from Saturday, June 22 to Friday, June 28 the flowers will be planted in the pleasure gardens, with the names of those to be remembered on display for all visitors to see. The display will include as many as 1,000 flowers that have been skilfully crafted by the British IronWork Centre.
In exchange for a suggested donation, the flower can be kept by whoever bought it, after the display.
Dedicate a flower by visiting khhospice.org.uk/forget-me-not before June 10. There is a suggested donation of £25.
