AN ELLESMERE Port company has pledged support for a choir’s blooming good anniversary celebration.

Wrought in the Port has offered to create wrought iron features, including a specially-designed handbag gate, for A Handbag of Harmonies’ proposed garden at the RHS Show at Tatton Park next July.

The women’s choir from BBC’s Last Choir Standing celebrates its 10th birthday in 2010 and green-fingered member Dori Miller has designed the garden.

The design features many of the Chester-based choir’s trademarks including handbags, feather boas and plenty of pink.

Professor Julia Buckroyd, director of Understanding your Eating, will sponsor many of the plants.

Other promises of sponsorship have come from Walkers Garden Centre in Huntington, near Chester, and estate agents Cavendish Ikin.

Dori said: “The choir is very grateful for all these pledges. If approved by the RHS, the garden will be costly to realise and the choir would welcome assistance from any individuals, organisations or businesses to make this dream a reality.”

The choir was founded in 2000 by Claire Smith and Matt Baker.
