Description

We are very pleased to announce that #Barnoldswick has once again won a Gold Award in the 'Town' Category in the North West In Bloom Awards 2014. (This is now the 4th time we have won a Gold Medal!) Barnoldswick also won the 'Overall Best Town in the North West' Award! Not only that but Barnoldswick has also been chosen to represent the whole of the North West in the Britain in Bloom Awards! This really is fantastic news for the town and acknowledges the achievements of countless hours of volunteer work and dedication that the members of Barnoldswick in Bloom, Businesses and Residents of Barnoldswick have shown throughout the year. All of this work goes into ensuring that Barnoldswick is an attractive and special place to live and visit. One more reason why Barnoldswick is a true Great British High Street! #GBHighSt It's been another busy year for the award winning Barnoldswick in Bloom group, building on their success from last years awards where they picked up the Best Newcomer award. This year the group have expanded gaining lots of new members along the way. The bloom group works to improve our town by creating a better environment for everyone to enjoy. The group carries out 'hands on' activity throughout the year, planting, tending and tidying up areas around Barnoldswick. The group is open to anyone that feels proud and passionate about Barnoldswick (or is willing to help improve civic pride). Activities for people of all ages and abilities are organised throughout the year. Enthusiasm is a common feature of group members; gardening experience is not a requirement (though the odd expert is appreciated!) The group works with local schools and other organisations, such as the Garden Gate Association and the Valley Garden group.
