The Alnwick Spring Show committee has announced a Novices Challenge for next year’s 10th anniversary event and is encouraging interested green-fingered residents to take part.

Anyone living within 20 miles of the town can get a free show-quality daffodil bulb, together with growing and showing instructions.

This offer is available on the undertaking that you will enter the resulting flower in the 10th anniversary show at Willowburn Sports and Leisure Centre, Alnwick, on Saturday, April 16.

To qualify as a novice, you must never have entered a daffodil in the Spring Show before.

For a bulb, call Gill on 01665 576512. Numbers are limited and it’s first-come, first-served.

Bulbs should be available at Alnwick Garden Club on Tuesday, September 29, in the Town Hall at 7pm.
