Flower show ups roots and moves

THERE will be a new venue this year for Montrose Horticultural Society’s flower show.

The show, on August 12 and 13, will be held in the Links Hotel instead of the town hall.

Chairperson of the society Ingrid Burghes said: “We are very excited about presenting the flower show at the Links Hotel, and are looking forward to a very successful event.”

In common with many organisations at the present time, Montrose Horticultural Society is facing financial challenges. The committee has already carried out several fund-raising activities, but more requires to be done to ensure the continued existence of the annual flower show.

On July 1 they will hold a quiz night in Hillside Village Hall starting at 7.30pm.

The charge will be £3 per person, but for a team of four pre-booking the cost will be £10.

To pre-book, please call 01674 830433.

Nibbles will be provided by the Horticultural Society, but teams are welcome to bring their own liquid refreshments.

The compere for the evening will be Joe Wishart.

Ingrid added: “Do get together with some friends and come along for an entertaining evening. Everyone will be very welcome.”
