Dear Parents and Carers,
In celebration of the 250th anniversary of the Ancient Society of Florists, the oldest florists’ society still in existence in the world, a new festival, Bloom!, is being planned for York in 2018. The new four day festival, from 5-8 July, celebrating horticulture and flowers in York, will mark the milestone with events and installations right across the city.
In response to Bloom! Lakeside will be creating flowers using a wide range of recycled materials to help create a flower wall at Explore York Libraries.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Mrs Reynolds will be working with children next week during lunchtimes to create some of the flowers but is also opening up The Zone after school on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th for an hour so parents can come and be creative with their children.
We need plastic bottles, colourful plastic bags and anything else that could be made into a flower! Please bring these with you or hand in to the office.
