Calling all Pubs and Restaurants!

Pudsey In Bloom is launching a competition for Pubs and restaurants in Pudsey, shortly one of our members will be distributing letters inviting anyone who is interested to enter the competition. Members of the group will judge the entries for their summer floral displays on Monday 6th July, and the winner will be visited by the `Yorkshire In bloom` judges on the 10th July. We will also try to get them as much publicity as we can and give them an advertisement on one of the flower troughs in the town centre.

Pudsey park does us proud!

We had this photo published in the Pudsey Times today, showing some of the members with a couple of the Park gardeners. The park has looked really stunning this spring and is a credit to the town.

The judges were obviously very impressed with our work with the community and the effort every member contributes.

Fun at the Carnival

We had lots of interest in our stall at this years Pudsey Carnival, and thankfully the weather held out, although this year we were in the Civic Society Marquis, and this gave us protection from the odd heavy showers! We sold lots of plants including houseplants, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers and chilis, many grown by members of the group and some donated from the public.

We were also visited by the local councillors and by the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress. The Lord Mayor is himself a former chairman of `Yorkshire In Bloom` and a long standing judge, and strongly supports work done by `in Bloom` groups.
