Our Latest News - July

July Update

We were blessed with glorious weather for the summer judging by Yorkshire in Bloom, and the town was looking fantastic. The strong yellow theme for the Grand Depart and the wonderful effort made for the Tour de Tod, especially by local businesses who had entered the shop window competition, all contributed to a marvellous display. Many thanks to all who made such an effort to show the town at its best. We look forward to the judges results in September.

We had a bumper crop of entries for the Annual garden Competition, many entering for the first time. The judges were impressed by the dedication and talent on display, and pleased to see some unusual ‘alternative’ gardens this year. A big thank you to all those who opened up their gardens to scrutiny! The presentation evening will take place in the first week of October; invites will go out to all who entered giving the date & details. We look forward to a great evening, a chance for the gardeners to meet, chat and enjoy the occasion; and a chance to appreciate the horticultural talent of local people.

The Community Herb garden opposite the Cricket Club now has a colourful banner giving useful information about the plants and how to use them. This was created as a joint project with Incredible Edible. We hope it will encourage more people to use the herbs with confidence.
