Knutsford Hosts get ready to support RHS at Tatton
FORTY Knutsford Hosts will be promoting the town at this years RHS Tatton Park Flower Show – double the number who supported Knutsford, Tatton Park and the RHS in 2015.
Knutsford Hosts is the town-wide volunteer group which acts as ambassadors to promote the town and provides support for events, organisations and charities in the town.
“In just two years we have gone from launching the scheme and working with six organisations, to welcoming our 70th host and working with more than 30 organisations, community groups and charities,” said Sarah Flannery who founded the scheme which is now a community association run by volunteers for volunteers.
“This year the Hosts have worked closely with the fantastic RHS and Tatton Park teams to coordinate more than 40 volunteers who will be supporting this fabulous, premier annual event.
“We’ve been invited to help with the gate, the Talks Theatre and the Tatton Park show garden and we’re looking forward to giving visitors a warm Knutsford welcome – and many reasons to return!”
Carole Mullineux, Tatton Park business development manager, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Knutsford Hosts for the third year running.
“The RHS Tatton Park Flower Show brings benefits for the local economy though tourism but also, as the Hosts partnership illustrates, builds upon existing strong community links between Tatton Park and Knutsford.”
