FLOWER POWER: A Huntingdon florist is celebrating her success in a prestigious national competition.

Hannah MacDonald, 21, of St Mary's Street, is manager of Mulberry's Florists in the town.

She entered the floristry category of the UK Skills Competition earlier this year, beating off stiff competition at a regional heat in Northamptonshire to make it to the final, which was held at RHS Tatton at the weekend.

Hannah has been a florist for three years and studied the art at an evening class held at Huntingdonshire Regional College.

She came first in the floral standing arrangement category and second overall - narrowly missing out on a chance to compete at the international competition, World Skills 2009.
