POP star turned garden designer Kim Wilde will be in Aldershot on July 14.

The singer of massive 80s hits Kids In America and You Keep Me Hangin' On will be signing autographs as she promotes Rushmoor's annual Green Family "Sun" Day and Flower Festival at the Princes Hall and Gardens.

This free family fun event is intended to raise awareness of environmental issues.

Rushmoor in Bloom co-ordinator Karen Fryer said: "Kim Wilde will be appearing in two chat show Parkinson-style interviews, and will be talking about her change of career from pop singer to garden designer.

"She will also talk about her family and some of the projects she has been working on, including her TV career."

The festival includes gardening advice and flower competitions, and runs from 10am to 4.30pm.

Other entertainment includes the Splodge children's zone, the Rio cycle ride, a bouncy castle, acoustic music and Britain's top Latin American dance team Yes Brazil.

Free parking is available, most conveniently in the Warburg by the Princes Hall.

Les Murrell, Rushmoor Council's Agenda 21 officer, said: "We will be celebrating ten years since Agenda 21 called on all local communities to take the lead in helping to tackle the many social and environmental problems facing the world.

"This event helps to promote what local people can do to act locally whilst thinking globally."
