‘The bad weather at the start of this week may have put a bit of a damper on Tynwald Day, but it certainly hasn’t stopped people visiting Flower Festival venues.’

Judy added: ‘A big thank you to all of our volunteers and organisers who have helped the festival get off to such a good start.’

Many of the venues have arranged additional activities during the week and it is worth checking the website www.flowerfest.im for details of opening times and events.

There is also a photographic competition. This year the competition is for digital entries only, up to a maximum of four per person. The theme is Our Community and pictures must have been taken in one of the festival venues.
