We were delighted to read in today’s newspapers that The Rose Society UK’s President, Colin Squire, has been awarded an OBE in the New Year Honours List.

Our members will know Colin from the rose shows that have been held at the Squires Garden Centres for more than forty years. Currently the Squires company host and sponsor  The Rose Society UK summer show and we’re are all looking forward to what promises to be  another fantastic show in 2018. Colin however is also known as a supporter of many local charities which in addition to his services to the country’s favourite flower make him a very worthy recipient of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

Congratulations Colin, the Society is proud to have you as our President.


An OBE like the one we hope to see Colin wearing this year
