A Blooming Good Time
The small community of Inglewood bloomed bright in mid-February as its Sunflower Festival attracted more than 2500 people into the town centre.
The festival, which received support and advice from Community Employment, was this year run in the town's centre so that local retailers as well as craft stall holders could benefit from the crowd.
The festival included sunflower, art and hair braiding competitions, as well as prizes for categories such as the most outrageous sunflower hairstyle and the best children's market stall decorated in a sunflower theme.
Inglewood Crossroads Promotions festival manager Brett Muir says there was a lot of family involvement in this year's festival, with some families scooping several prizes in the competitions.
The festival aims to bring new visitors into the community, increase opportunities for local retailers and craftspeople, and to raise the profile of the community as a good place to live and do business.
