Why not! The Festival of Flowers will feature the most whacky event in recent times sponsored by none other than John Rhind Funeral Directors. Participants are invited to pimp up their mobility scooters, zimmer frames, hats and walking sticks and shuffle down to the Cathedral Square on Saturday February 15th from 1-3pm. Participants need to arrive with their artistic item before 1pm to be in to win prizes. There will be parades, live music, and an afternoon that guarantees to be a complete hoot! Ex mayor Vicki Buck will be in attendance for prize giving, and of course in the best possible taste this event will be dedicated in honour of our elders, to celebrate the wise folk in the community in colourful style!
