My Pension Expert delights at the RHS Malvern Spring Festival

You sow the seeds early, tend to the plants regularly and diligently, and then, once that investment has been made, you get to enjoy the flowers bloom. In many ways, pension planning and gardening are the same.

That is why My Pension Expert were proud to be a headline partner at last weekend’s RHS Malvern Spring Festival

Tens of thousands gathered at the Three Counties Showground in Worcestershire for the fantastic four-day event running from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th, to enjoy the extravagant RHS show gardens. 

Visitors got the chance to admire the Malvern floral marquee and revel in the festivities by enjoying the show gardens and variety of local produce and shopping arcades, including the new permanent garden commissioned in the showground to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Making its triumphant return, after last year’s unfortunate cancellation due to pandemic restrictions, the show was once again a fantastic opportunity for festivalgoers to celebrate the rich history of the RHS, while crucially supporting local enterprises – a cause that My Pension Expert have always been passionate about. 

Further, this year’s festival was the organisers’ greenest yet, with the adoption of sustainable practices such as encouraging visitors to bring their own shopping bags and utilise Showground water bottle refill stations. Indeed, a welcome change and one that matches with the values of My Pension Expert, as we adopt Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) in all aspects of our business and constantly seek to improve this.

Meanwhile, the festival renowned for its line-up, hosted a number of famous faces; horticulture royalty such as Monty Dom and Arty Anderson made their appearances, as well as many other speakers who delighted with a range of topics across the show’s various stages. The My Pension Expert team were particularly enthused by a talk hosted by world-famous chef, Raymond Blanc regarding British Produce (although sadly, no food samples were handed to the audience

Better yet, this year’s line up included rowers Jessica Oliver and Charlotte Harris of the My Pension Expert sponsored Team Wild Waves to give a talk titled “Breaking Bias and World Records, with Atlantic Rowers Team Wild Waves”. These inspirational women shared their tough training experiences, and how they overcame numerous challenges to smash the world record by five whole days. 

Finally, the team were honoured to get the opportunity to meet Princess Anne when the royal attendee visited the My Pension Expert booth on the Friday. The Princess Royal is a patron of the RHS and was at the event to present an award. 

My Pension Expert were delighted to see the festival’s turn out and proud to collaborate with the Royal Horticultural Society playing a part in such a much-loved event! We can’t wait until next year!
