The judges’ comment after the Yorkshire in Bloom Spring judging arrived at the end of May. They have awarded us Silver gilt, just one step below gold!
Everyone who helped should be delighted and the town should be proud of them.
Since the judging we have had a seat installed beside the memorial rose garden and it was sponsored by Charlton’s of Boroughbridge. (Now has its brass plaque in place since the photo was taken). New wooden flowers, from Jennyruth Workshop, have been erected in the circles at Stump Cross, each bearing a bee which is Brighter Boroughbridge’s theme for this year.
Now it is time to try for that elusive gold award in the Summer but we will need help to do this. We were hoping to show the Millennium Garden in the grounds of the Primary school and we have been weeding and planting. We are also working towards a wild meadow area to be finished by the end of June. Our work in that garden is constantly being vandalised, rubbish, concrete blocks, wooden pallets and a chair have had to be removed. This garden is very large and everyone should enjoy it. So we ask the youths that are doing this to please build their dens away from the gate and area we are trying to improve.
