The Royal Windsor Rose Show Floral Club celebrates its diamond jubilee this year.

The club grew out of the Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society which was formed in 1892 and presented its shows in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Floral arrangements became such a popular part of the show that a separate floral club was formed in 1958.

President Wendy Godrich said: "Membership remains at over 50 and, we are fortunate to have members who are prepared to make tea, clear the hall and indeed raise very necessary funds to keep us going.

"We still manage a monthly competition and learn from that. We are delighted that local clubs have now joined us at the Society’s Summer Show in Windsor creating large displays."

The diamond anniversary is being celebrated with a lunch at Gardeners Hall, St Leonad's Road, Windsor on Tuesday, May 1. For more details email
