Judges are impressed

Have your say

YORKSHIRE in Bloom judges have given an early assessment on Barnsley’s efforts and are impressed with what they have seen.

Judges Steve Mellard from Rotherham, and Deborah Wright from Calderdale, were taken on a tour of the borough and said Barnsley’s efforts made for a very positive start to the 2011 competition.

“Seasonal bedding was at its peak and the Town Hall frontage, Town End traffic island and Cannon Hall gardens were examples of spring colour with associated high maintenance techniques,” the judges said.

The high level of cleanliness was also a highlight they said.
