Trawden was blessed with brilliant sunshine and warm weather as North West in Bloom judges visited the village on Tuesday.

After the judges were given a tour of the beauty spots by Trawden in Bloom volunteers, there was a special surprise for some of Trawden’s young Bloomers who were presented with hi-viz jackets donated by Text Styles.

Local poet Sarah Greenwood then read a poem that she had composed, all about Trawden, before it was time for lunch. Bev Robinson, from Trawden in Bloom, said: “We were very lucky with the weather and the judges saw Trawden parish at its best. “We took the judges all around the parish, visiting gardens and containers that have been planted and maintained by Trawden in Bloom, showing the beds maintained by Incredible Edibles and the area of Wycoller maintained by Friends of Wycoller. “Of course, it is just an opinion, but I think they were impressed with what they saw. I would especially like to thank all the Trawden parish residents for working so hard to keep it a litter-free zone. It certainly helps the area look beautiful.”
