Barnoldswick hopes to clean up with awards in bloom
2:24pm Tuesday 8th July 2014 in News
THE streets of Barnoldswick were hoovered by volunteers who are hoping to 'blow away' the competition in this year's Britain in Bloom.
Town council chairman Claire Teall and vice-chairman David Whipp, right, took to the streets with their vacuums ahead of a visit by judges today.
Mr Whipp said: “We’re not usually so obsessed about cleaning the last speck of dust from the ground but we want it to be impeccable and this gives us a great excuse to give the town a good clean.
The judges will arrive at 9.30am and take a two hour tour of the town.
The stakes are high for Barnoldswick, as the town has won at least a gold medals each time it entered Britain in Bloom .
