CLANWILLIAM FLOWER SHOW CANCELLED DUE TO DROUGHT
This year’s Clanwilliam Wild Flower Show - an annual event that takes place in the town’s beautiful, historical Flower Church - has been cancelled due to the extreme drought in the area. This decision was made this week after thorough deliberation with all the parties involved. The Flower Show would have taken place from 25 August to 2 September.
“It is with a heavy heart that we eventually decided to cancel the show. The extreme drought that the whole country is experiencing is the cause of the very late blooming of the flowers and plants. We don’t have enough flowers to build the displays for the show,” says Alida Stone, chairman of the Clanwilliam Flower Show committee.
