CHELSEA AND HAMPTON COURT FLOWER SHOWS
We have been exhibiting at Chelsea for since 2006 and like to incorporate a feature area as part of the trade-stand.
2013 was the RHS centenary year. We discovered that the bench we inherited with this cottage in 1980 was also 100 years old as it is made from the reclaimed teak decking of HMS Birmingham, launched in 1913.
2013 was the year that the Duke of Edinburgh came on to the stand at Chelsea to hear my story of the bench and then he explained to me the difference between a Battleship and a light town Cruiser!
