    You could have pushed the boat out and had both!

    Did you go on the ferris wheel?

    I was up for a spin on the wheel but with half the seats taken up by flowers and a double length queue I really lost interest.

    If I was on my own I would have found a way to get to the front of the queue.

    I've been on the wheel in Manchester - but didn't like the pod idea - prefer it to be open in summer.,

    Another Flower show late July at Tatton Park. 241 prices if disabled. The killer is the scooter hire - £25 for the day. Why not £3 an hour as most people might only stay for half a day! Toe rags!!

    Hi Lighttouch, I responded to you on the 25-27 June 2015, Donington Park - the Derby one £25 - is totally refundable - you book and pay a deposit and then when you return the scooter - you can opt to donate it or have a refund.

    Mobility Loans

    Event Mobility will again be providing the mobility loans service for the 2015 Mobility Roadshow. To pre-book your electric scooter or manual wheelchair please go to our page on their website, and download the booking form or call them on 01386 725391 for booking details.

    Please note : A refundable deposit of £25 is required for scooters and £10 for manual wheelchairs.


    Though it is disgraceful the RHS at Tatton Park.

    Wheelchairs
    A limited number of electric scooters and wheelchairs are available for use at the show and can be booked by calling 0844 581 0700. A charge of £10 is made for wheelchair hire and £25 for electric scooter hire. The wheelchair collection points are located just outside the show entrances at Deer Park and Mansion House.


    That is extortionate.

    This years RHS FlowerShow will be held at Tatton Park again the end of the month. Think I'll invite mum as she's the one with green fingers. Just tried watering front border plants and succeeded in getting wet myself and nearly joining them in the border. Can't use a watering can these days as best arm uses crutch and the other arm barely works. Can be very frustrating when it's such a simple task. Grrrr.

    Luckily there was a big storm last night so everything was well watered. I would have asked my lodger but she's away on her jollies in Devon. I'm sure she will give me a lift when she returns being the helpful type.

    Well, it's here again! Tatton Park'sRHS Flower Show opens up to the public today and I'm taking my mum tomorrow morning as she loves anything to do with the garden.

    Hope Fliss and Catlover get a look in too.

    I'm hoping to buy some Lupins and giant Allium when there.

    It's not going to be steaming hot this year but will take a picnic and brolley!!

    Ooh, enjoy! No I'm not going this year, just didn't get organised. Last year was too hot, today should be good. But yes, I'd take a waterproof just in case.
