We certainly had great fun at the orchid festival, and from your feedback, so did you! You can now re-live the event with the following photos taken at the event by our resident photographer – Luke Shackleton.
Yesterday was pose for photos day at the orchid project. We had the chairs of both Bath and North East Somerset Council and Norton Radstock Town Council with us to present our Britain in bloom trophy (hurrah!)
Our award was the South West TV cup for outstanding project. Well done everyone.
