Barnoldswick faces an agonising wait for results day after Britain in Bloom judges visited the town on Tuesday.

Three regional judges browsed an array of flowers in full bloom across the town including the pop-up planters created by schoolchildren.

Barnoldswick secured the “Greenall Whitley Trophy” for “Best Feature in a Public Place” for its pop-up planters in 2013 as well as gold in the “Best Town” category.

Coun. David Whipp said: “The three regional Britain in Bloom judges were very impressed with Barnoldswick this morning and were full of praise for the standard of our planting, the maintenance of our open spaces and cleanliness of our streets.

“The school planter project ‘Wartime Allotments’ was very well received, as were the enthusiastic children.

“They also appreciated the locally produced lunch we fed them after their judging tour.

“The verdict on the day, though, was that we’d improved on the Gold Medal standard we set last year. So a good day for Barnoldswick.

“Thank you to everyone who helped in any way with the Barnoldswick in Bloom initiative.”

Results for the North West are set to be announced in October.
