Yorkshire in Bloom 2011 comments

We have just come the end of a hectic three weeks – preparing for the judging of the 2011 Neighbourhood Award.

We not only include the village railway station, but the local churches, inn,village green and residents.

            

Jim Jarratt & Paul Trafford working on the village green

 

We had two teams of volunteers from the Royal Sun Alliance office this year

.

They were younger and fitter than us - and could get at places we could not reach......

The volunteers did a superb job - thank you.

Thanks to Nigel Oliver (Green Business Network 3rd from l) for organising the RSA volunteers.
