The Weston Flower Show will be judged virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Weston Flower Show has been cancelled and replaced with a virtual version.
John Chapman, chairman of the Weston Horticultural Board, confirmed the change, caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
A statement from the event’s organisers said: “We propose holding a virtual Flower Show in the early part of August where exhibitors can submit photos of their entries for judging.
“We have had to restrict the entries to horticultural items. The show normally has many other categories, i.e. floral art, home craft, handicraft and children’s competitions.
