BBC cameras will roll into Chirk this Friday after the town was selected
to appear in a Gardener’s World
Film crews will converge on the town for the whole day, focusing on the efforts of the reigning Britain in Bloom champions as part of the one-off documentary that will be broadcast during next year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
It comes ahead of next month’s Wales in Bloom awards ceremony, which will be held at the town’s Parish Hall on September 20.
Jackie Allen, chairman of the Chirk Community Forum, which leads the town’s In Bloom entries, said it was “an honour” to be chosen.
She said: “We think this is a tremendous thing for Chirk.
“The documentary should show Chirk at its best.
“It will support Britain in Bloom and Wales in Bloom entries for other communities and raise the profile of Chirk. It will tell the public the story of what we do and showcase Chirk in a new light,” she added.
Everything from cutting grass, to litter picking and watering, will be covered by the BBC team, as well as a special Teddy Bear Jump at St Mary’s Parish Church. The jump will run from 2.30pm, jumps cost £1 and everyone is welcome.
In previous years the jumps have been used to raise funds for the community forum’s n Bloom efforts.
The 2014 Chelsea Flower Show takes place between May 20 and 24.
