Jersey woman represents Great Britain as floral judge

Judges must have experience of community nature projects

A woman from Jersey has been chosen to represent Great Britain as a judge in a European flower competition.

The Entente Florale competition for towns and villages in 12 European countries was set up 25 years ago.

Each country contributes two judges to the panel and Sue Rodrigues, the coordinator of a parish environment group, will represent Great Britain.

Mrs Rodrigues, from St Lawrence, was selected for the role by the Royal Horticultural Society.

As part of her new role, she will travel to Italy, Germany and the Netherlands.

Judges must have knowledge and experience of nature projects in the community and Mrs Rodrigues has been coordinating environmental projects in St Lawrence for the past 17 years.
