Hundreds of folk helped the Valley Gardens Working Group raise a small fortune at its annual Summer Fair.
Saturday’s event saw crowds flock to the evergreen event in Barnoldswick’s pocket park and £700 was raised on the day, largely through the Spring Duck Race along Butts Beck and through tombola ticket sales.
There were hands on activities aplenty for the family to get involved with including the forest school living jungle, wood carving, kite making, games and face painting.
On top of that there was a chance to plant up woolly hanging baskets, plant in a perennial bed and bling up a bike while charities and schools had stalls.
Barnoldswick in Bloom also used the event to launch its 2015 campaign in style and new recruits signed up for the bloom team’s civic pride “Litter Quitter” initiative and were inducted into the Litter Quitter Superhero Hall of Fame.
Bloomers also unfurled Barnoldswick’s finalist banner for the town’s first ever entry into the Royal Horticultural Society Britain in Bloom finals.
Valley Gardens Working Group Secretary, Joyce Holgate, said: “Everybody seemed to have fun and enjoy it.
“The living jungle had some huge snakes. That was very popular, whenever I looked it was full of people.
“The money raised will mean we can put in some terracing and wood carvings into the gardens.”
Barnoldswick’s judging for the Britain in Bloom finals will take place on Tuesday, August 11th and the town is up against Cupar, Dalton with Newton, Falmouth, Henley on Thames, Pembrey and Burry Port and Tewkesbury.
