Chichester will be looking resplendent throughout the Summer with a wonderful display of official Jubilee and Union Jack flags as well as street bunting and an increase in planting across the city including some special planters inspired by the Jubilee celebrations created by Bunch Florist on West Street.

In addition, with the return of the Festival of Flowers and to unite all the businesses over the Jubilee, we are challenging local businesses to put their best creative foot forward and take part in a window competition with a fabulous flower theme. Look out for these stunning window displays during June, they will make the city a joy to stroll through.
