There were gold awards given across the North Yorkshire coast in the recent ‘Yorkshire in Bloom.’
The most notable award was for Filey, who claimed gold in Coastal Towns with a population of under 12,000.
There were plenty of awards for the Yorkshire Coast in the Open Spaces Category. Friends of Filey Parks were awarded Platinum whilst there were gold awards for Pannett park in Whitby, Friends of Dean Road & Manor Road Cemeteries in Scarborough, Friends of South Cliff Gardens in Scarborough and Peasholm Park Friends in Scarborough.
Marion Wright is the Chairman of the Filey in Bloom Group. She said:
“There’s an awful lot of people that Filey gets left out, that the Scarborough Borough doesn’t give enough to Filey.
But we feel it’s very, very important that we keep going and visitors always say to us what a lovely town we have and how nice and tidy it is.
We try to keep the town the best we can and we’re always looking for people to help us with extra bits of work.
They can come along and do a few hours work. We’re all getting older you see, sow e need other people to help out.”
