STRICTLY Come Dancing head judge and Wirral born dancer Shirley Ballas is set to launch the new Wallasey Village in Bloom’s Floral Trail - and everyone is welcome to celebrate.

Originally from Wallasey, the 58-year-old star will launch the new trail on Sunday, May 5 from 11.30am at Wallasey Village Library on St George’s Road.

The Floral Trail consists of four trails, all at different lengths, the trails aim to cater for all and were part funded by Tesco Groundworks and local businesses.

Secretary of Wallasey Village in Bloom, Anne Williams told the Globe: “This is an exciting new project that brings together our work in the community for everyone to share.

“Our aim has always been to bring a sense of pride to the village and establish it as a great place to live, work and visit.

“All these aspects are reflected in the Floral Trail.

“The four different trails around the village showcase what is unique about the area and highlights our thriving community, including all floral displays we’ve produced and historical places of interest.

“Each trail is tailored to suit all age groups to promote health and wellbeing.”

Wallasey Village in Bloom was founded in 2013 by Anne and Michelle Price with the aim of making the village ‘smile with flowers.’

Currently there are five members who work closely together with eight volunteers.

In 2017 the group entered the RHS Britain in Bloom competition and received Silver in the large village category before achieving gold a year later.
