JUDGES from the regional Britain in Bloom visited Barnoldswick on Tuesday.

Barnoldswick in Bloom, which has won three gold awards and two trophies since in inception in 2011, gave North West in Bloom judges a tour around sites the group has been working on and also showed them future sites that would be set aside for planting.

The judges also viewedWorld War I pop-up planters designed by children from four Barnoldswick primary schools - Barnoldswick C of E, Coates Lane, Gisburn Road and St Joseph's.

"It's a project inspired by the commemorative activities surrounding the First World War," said Barnoldswick in Bloom volunteer David Whipp. "It's an opportunity for kids to imagine living through the war, when there was a shortage of food and rationing."

Each school grew a small selection of a dozen different vegetables, and all schools grew poppies.

David added: "The judges were very impressed and pleased with what they saw."
