Holmfirth’s biggest ever flower display set to impress Yorkshire In Bloom judges
Jul 20 2010 Huddersfield Daily Examiner
HOLMFIRTH hoped its biggest ever floral display impressed judges who have just visited the town.
The town has entered this year’s Yorkshire In Bloom – the regional leg of Britain In Bloom, which is one of the country’s largest horticultural competitions. The town, aided by a £4,560 grant from Holme Valley South Area Committee (HVSAC), installed over 100 hanging baskets – 60 supplied by Bradley Nursery – tubs and flower towers on the streets, buildings and lamp-posts.
Kirklees Council has organised its own competitions and schemes including Holmfirth in Bloom, Tidy Trader, and a Guides, Brownies and Rainbows planting contest sponsored by HVSAC, Holme Valley Parish Council and Holmfirth Rotary Club.
An extra flower bed has been planted at Victoria Park by horticultural apprentices Lewis Wroe and Elliot Wilkinson. Pupils from Holme J&I School, Wooldale J School and Brockholes J&I School produced artwork as part of the Yorkshire In Bloom poster competition with prizes from Totties Garden Centre, Holmfirth.
