YOUNGER volunteers are being urgently sought to help keep a North Somerset village event alive.

YOUNGER volunteers are being urgently sought to help keep a North Somerset village event alive.

Organisers of the Barrow Gurney Flower Show fear the future of the annual spectacular could be at risk if more people do not come forward to help with its organisation.

Currently there are 12 committee members who get together every year to plan the show.

However, many of them are getting older so younger blood is needed to ensure the show carries on in the village.

Jo Collins, who has been show secretary for 10 years, said: "The show is very important to the village as it gets people together.

"At the moment, a lot of the work is falling on a small group of people, which cannot carry on."

A group of people do help with work, such as setting up tents, at the time of the show but more people are needed to help plan the event throughout the year.

Anyone wishing to help or join the committee should call Jo on 01275 463146.
