Welcome for judges

FILEY in Bloom volunteers hope to have made a good impression after welcoming Yorkshire in Bloom judges to the town.

The group have been awarded Silver Gilt for the past few years and are hoping 2011 will be the year they reach Gold.

Yesterday’s judging route included the Memorial Gardens, Crescent Gardens, the allotments and the winner of last year’s Best Kept Gardens competition.

As well as being shown flowerbeds and horticultural achievements, judges also looked at businesses, recycling and tidiness.
