Salisbury City Council's been trying to find a moniker for the ever popular floral mascot's partner.

The authority ran a competition at the National Armed Force Day event at Hudson's Field last month to ask visitors to suggest a name for Mrs Gilbert.

More than 400 entries were put in, and 20 were then chosen at random.

From those, Salisbury Mayoress Carolyn Blanch picked a winner.

That means Mrs Gilbert will now be known as 'Matilda'!

The name was suggested by 4 year old Jasper at the Salisbury AFD event.

Salisbury City Council has also held a Facebook competition to give away other merchandise.

Donna Hall was chosen out of more than 100 likes to win the goodies.

We can also get hold of Gilbert merchandise from the Salisbury Information Centre, with Mr and Mrs Gilbert keyrings and bags in stock.
