The British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry has created flowers for the ITV show Love your Garden hosted by Alan Titchmarsh.

The colourful flowers are for a project to create a hospital garden for ill children at Manchester Children's Hospital.

Along with the bright larger-than-life flowers, the garden incorporates outdoor table tennis, and a pagoda, with a spectacular array of flora and fauna.

The project also saw partnerships with Manchester Police and the Manchester Fire and Rescue service.

British Ironworks chairman, Clive Knowles said: "This project, was immediately of interest and we hope to have injected some bright summer colour , to really make a splash outside the hospital.

"Alan was delighted and we hope to be working in collaboration with the Love your Garden team again soon.

"Producers from the show are going to be hopefully visiting Oswestry shortly, to visit the Ironworks and explore new projects for the near future."

The British Ironwork Centre is also delighted to receive an award for its disability efforts.

In February, the centre welcomed an evaluation of its facilities by Shropshire Disability Network. The charity provides a collective voice for disabled people in the county.

Ruby Hartshorn, chair of Shropshire Disability Network, presented Emma Parry from the British Ironworks Centre with a certificate of appreciation.

Emma said: "This is amazing. We try so hard to accommodate people of all abilities; it’s really uplifting to have our efforts recognised."

The British Ironworks Centre is visited by hundreds, if not thousands, of people each year who use wheelchairs and walking aids. The centre has agreed to quarterly checks and to implement any actions recommended by the charity in future.
