New Rose in honour of the Calendar Girls grown in Huddersfield

On the 12th July 2014 Sue Natkus and Margaret Wormald from York Fundraising Group attended the Ryedale Rose Festival at the nurseries of R V Roger Nurserymen in Pickering.

A new rose has been bred by Mr Ronnie Rawlins of Huddersfield from Seed Parent ‘English Courtyard’ and Pollen Parent ‘Donna Rose’. The Rose has been named in honour of our very own Calendar Girls.

The Calendar Girls were all present at the Festival and they were presented with a framed rose registration certificate certifying that the rose had been registered with the International  Cultivation Registration Authority for Roses in Louisiana USA  on 12 December 2013. 

The Calendar Girls then presented Sue with the certificate.

Ronnie Rawlins then presented Margaret with a bouquet of the beautiful roses.

Mr Rawlins said the rose was presently growing in the rose fields and would be available to buy on line from November.



A wonderful and fitting gesture not only for the original Calendar Girls but all those that have taken part in a Calendar Girls production up and down the country to help us beat blood cancer.
