Our Latest News - July

July Update

The start of July was a hectic but very satisfying time for our dedicated team: the summer judging by Yorkshire in Bloom and our first ever Open Gardens Event took place on the first weekend of the month. We were lucky to have good weather in which to show the judges around the town, and this continued for the weekend ensuring a very pleasing number of visitors to the Open Gardens. A big thank you to the local gardeners who participated in this, they obviously worked tremendously hard to prepare their gardens. There was a great variety of different garden styles and sizes showing a wonderful display of horticultural skill; feedback from visitors clearly showed how much they were appreciated & enjoyed. We hope this event can be repeated in the future for it gave pleasure to a huge number of people and the chance to meet like minded enthusiasts.

Our team worked steadily throughout the month tending the public garden spaces such as the Butterfly Garden near the station and Fielden Wharf where some new plants have been added to the bank beside the wharf.

Judging for our local Garden Competition took place at the end of the month; we were happy to welcome Alison walker, a previous worthy winner in the competition, to join the judging team. As usual there were many lovely gardens to see & an impressive display of talent.

We are pleased to welcome a new member to our team; Pam Kiernan joined us this month. It’s great to see our team growing in strength – let’s flex those gardening muscles!
