“Astley Park is a glorious setting and it will be the perfect place to come and get some inspiration and ideas for your garden at home and it is a great day out for all generations of the family.

“We’ve developed the show again this year including more food, entertainment and seating areas based on feedback from attendees as we look to make it a real visitor-friendly show.

“We’ve had fantastic turnouts at our summer events and I’d urge everyone to come and support the flower show so we can make this event one that Chorley residents will be proud of for years to come.”
