St Mary’s Village Carnival School Float Winner 2015

We’re thrilled to report that the Totternhoe Lower School float entry for the 2015 St. Mary’s Village Carnival Procession has won first place in the school category.

The children, staff and Parent’s Association truly outdid themselves this year with a superb float themed around ‘The Little Mermaid.’  The children had a great time dressing up with some excellent costumes on display.

With an astonishing level of detail the float received many complimentary remarks from those lining the route of the procession through Eaton Bray to Edlesborough.  A superb model of Ursula complete with tentacles loomed menacingly over beautiful coral reefs with King Triton standing guard and mermaids sitting in shells.  Everywhere you looked there was a feast for the eyes with no detail overlooked.

At the Cottage Garden we were again honoured to be involved, providing materials and work space for the Parent’s Association to meet, plan and work on their contribution.  There will be another chance to see the superb float at the Leighton Buzzard Carnival on Saturday 11 July 2015

Huge congratulations to all involved and a very well done for all your hard work. Here are some pictures from the day along with a short video.

Valentine’s Day 2015 – Red Roses & More

This year Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday.  We’ll be delivering on the 14th but we’ll also be able to deliver on the 13th for those who prefer their flowers to arrive at the workplace.  Whichever day suits we’ll have our full range of beautiful fresh flowers.

We’ll have our sumptuous large headed red Freedom roses which continually prove popular year after year with their vibrant red tone, strong stems and great vase life.

We will do our best as always to keep stock levels running high but we still recommend that you order early to avoid disappointment.

Along with classic roses we’ll have a number of other designs available and you can of course specify your own design which our florists will create for you.  Below is our red rose price list along with a few other designs we will be promoting.
