JUDGES from the regional Britain in Bloom initiative visited Barnoldswick yesterday and were impressed by the town’s beautiful flower displays.

RHS Britain in Bloom is the largest horticultural campaign in the United Kingdom and Barnoldswick has been considered one of the best in recent years, getting a gold medal each time they have entered.

‘Scores’ of volunteers took to the streets yesterday to clean, tidy, trim and preen ahead of the judges visit to ensure that they left with a good impression.
