Pateley Bridge entered the competition last year, winning silver gilt, and missing out on gold by only 3 points. This year they are aiming for gold, with judging to take place in July.
Julian Smith said:
I was delighted to see the wonderful floral display which enhances Pateley Bridge’s already wonderful independent high street and I wish them the best of luck in the competition!
Keith Tordoff Chairman of the Nidderdale Chamber of Trade and Chair of the Pateley Bridge in Bloom group said:
Julian Smith MP supported the Pateley Bridge in Bloom group last year and we are delighted that he is once again getting behind the groups effort to go for gold in the competition.
Mr Smith kindly took time on Friday to tour Pateley Bridge with the Bloom group leaders to see the preparations that are starting to be put in place for this years projects for the competition in the town.
I was delighted to be able to inform Mr Smith that Pateley Bridge efforts will be filmed for the second series of the BBC TV programme ‘ Britain in Bloom ‘ showcasing the area nationwide on the television.
