A LANDMARK anniversary will be reached when Thornbury Horticultural Society stages its spring flower show.

The organisation will celebrate its 60th year of putting on the event - the first of two shows it holds each year in the Armstrong Hall.

Society members hope plenty of entries will be received for the show and that it will attract a large number of visitors to see them on Saturday, March 17, when the doors open at 1.30pm and close at 4pm.

There will be classes for a range of spring flowering plants, including daffodils, as well as a class run in conjunction with Thornbury in Bloom.

Children have their own section and there will also be judging of cookery, crafts and photographs.

Refreshments will be available during the show and a number of plants will be on sale.

Anyone who wants to enter can also pick up a show schedule from Thornbury Town Hall, the library, J&T Owen on The Plain and the Garden Shop, off High Street.
