Nominate someone special to receive a rose

By Claire Williamson

Who would you like to give a rose to?

Ahead of the city's annual Rose Week, Belfast City Council is asking visitors to nominate someone they would like to see receive a rose.

The family fun event gets under way on Monday, July 16, and along with the spectacle of colourful roses there will be a host of activities.

The event is free, and to add to this year's fun at Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park, nomination winners will receive one of the rose plants from the Lord Mayor.

A free shuttle bus will ferry visitors from the grounds of Belfast City Hall to the park every 20 minutes throughout the week.

Nominations can be made on Belfast City Council's social media using #roseweek18 with pictures from the park or via an entry form from the information marquee.
