Yorkshire in Bloom results

The Yorkshire in bloom competition results.

In the small country town category Haworth came 5th (7th in 2003, 9th 2002) Judges comments:

"The Haworth in Bloom Committee continues to strive to make their town a better place to live and visit. It was pleasing to see colourful floral features adorning some public houses and businesses. Sustainable planting was also noticeable, especially down the Main st. The support of the school gardening club was also very noticeable but consideration should be given to embracing other voluntary support to sustain its endeavours. Residential gardens were maintained to a high standard as was the churchyard. The soft landscape of the Parsonage was developing well with a good mix of herbaceous perennials. One of the highlights of the visit was the railway station that provided a wealth of colour for its passengers. The standard of maintenance in the park was good and with the support of a friends group can go from strength to strength in terms of development. The standard of street furniture could do with some refurbishment and hopefully this can be addressed as part of the new 'Street Scene' initiative that has recently been launched. The grass outside the school would benefit from an increased cutting regime and there was a clear absence of litter. It was pleasing to see the Police community Contact Point supporting the entry by providing various sustainable and seasonal planters. This was a very commendable entry and everybody should be proud of their efforts."

The school gardening club missed out on first place by one mark this year. Feedback from the judges:

"Horticultural excellence oozes from every area from around the school. From a newly planted rose bed to herbaceous perennials, raised vegetable plots along with floral planters and tastefully planted hanging baskets, they all provide a fitting environment for a teaching venue. The head teacher and Steve Thorpe should be very proud of the gardening club, which has not only transformed the school but is actively involved in supporting the town of Haworth in the Yorkshire in bloom campaign. A truly excellent achievement. Keep up the good work!"

The war memorial came 17th. Judges comments:

"The memorial is set in a very profile area of the town. The floral displays were very colourful and well maintained. Every effort should be made to re-landscape the rear of the memorial with the possible introduction of some additional planters perhaps with a sensory theme, which would soften the entrance to the area. It was pleasing to see the school gardening club actively involved in the overall maintenance and well-being of the site."
