Volunteers, stewwards and sponsors sought for Shrewsbury Flower Show

Businesses and residents from across Shropshire have the chance to be involved in the world’s longest-running flower show.

The organisers of the Shrewsbury Flower Show are offering the chance for companies to sponsor elements of the event, which this year takes place on August 10th and 11th.

Show organisers are also looking for members of the public to join the team of volunteers which help at the show every year.

The show has guest gardeners, celebrity chefs, live music and a steam locomotive from Ffestiniog Railway, as well as hundreds of exhibits from amateur growers and professional horticulturalists.

Sponsorship packages can be tailored to individual businesses with prominent advertising for the company next to the area, marquee or event they are supporting.

Those signing up to support the show will receive social media promotion throughout the year, feature on the event’s website and have a company banner displayed in the arena.

Individuals can also support the show by signing up to become a steward. The role includes assisting and advising visitors, exhibitors and traders in the week leading up to the event as well as on show days.

Amanda Jones, chair of the Shrewsbury Flower Show marketing committee, said: “Without our group of stewards, we would not be able to do the show, the help of every volunteer is invaluable.
“We are always looking for new people to join the team - many people enjoy the role so much they return year after year.

“Business sponsorship is also something we are hugely grateful for as it enables us to continue putting on such a tremendous show for visitors to enjoy.

“We must remember that so much of the money we raise goes straight back into the local community across Shropshire so by being a steward our supporters are helping to make a real difference to those people living and working in Shropshire.

“This year looks set to be one of our best yet, with appearances from top names such as Chris Beardshaw and Levi Roots as well as exciting displays from many professional and amateur gardeners.”
