Free flowers for International Women’s Day at Rushden Lakes

Posted 7th March 2024

Rushden Lakes is celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD) 2024 by gifting beautiful bouquets to visitors. On Friday 8th March, find the blooms in various locations around the destination to take home for free or re-gift to an inspirational woman.

In collaboration with a woman-owned local florist, In Bloom, each flower bouquet has been carefully created with a mixture of flowers using the IWD colour scheme, Green, Purple and White. According to the organisation’s website, “Purple signifies justice and dignity and being loyal to the cause. Green symbolises hope. White represents purity, albeit a controversial concept.”

There will be 20 bouquets in total for visitors to find, each with a message from Rushden Lakes featuring a quote from an inspirational woman, including Michelle Obama and Serena Williams. They’re limited availability, so be quick! If found, Rushden Lakes is encouraging posting on social media to spread the IWD #InspireInclusion message and promote the creative and artistic talent of the In Bloom florists.
