I was at Tatton today and I have to say that our staff have done our beautiful County proud.
The amount of leaflets that visitors were taking was incredible and I hope that this will result in many visitors coming to Conwy, I actually overheard two couples saying that it was their intention to visit Conwy in September. I hope also that the publicity in the national press and media will help attract people.
Peter Barton-Price is the genius behind this creation which is celebrating the Honey Bee and all the work that it does whilst pollinating all our plants. My hat goes off to him and his team.
After the show all the bedding plants will be auctioned and money raised will go to charity. Also Peter tells me that the Bee props will be going up to Ty Gobaith children's hospice for them to be placed in their flowerbeds. Last year the sale of the plants raised £500 for Ty Gobaith.
Sorry for the poor quality photos but my camera packed in, so I used my phone camera. I will post a better photo as soon as I can.
