Thursday 20th April, 2017. A total of 46 persons from Christleton and surrounding villages climbed on board an Eagles and Crawford coach and set off at 8.08am bound for the Harrogate Spring Flower Show. A trip arranged by Christleton Women's Institute. The 5 1/2 hours there was barely long enough to take in the all the wonderful plants and displays. But I am sure the ladies of the WI must have been marvelled at the HortCouture, the connection between flowers and fashion. A special exhibition by the costumier and artist Jenny Gillies. Everyone safely back in the village by 7.10pm after a wonderful day out.
