Residents in Pocklington are being asked to make sure their gardens are tidy as the town gets set to welcome back Yorkshire in Bloom judges Bridget Conner and Gemma Kelmanson for their summer visit to the town.

The visit, on 6 July, starts at Burnby Hall Gardens at 2pm. The judges will be taken via The Balk roundabout to the Memorial Gardens on Grape Lane. They will then walk through the town centre to the World War One memorial outside the Post Office and visit Betterton Court. A visit is also planned to the allotments and David Higgins hairdressers on Garths End. Pocklington in Bloom wants residents on The Balk, Station Road, Grape Lane, Market Place, Market Street and The Mile to do all they can to make sure their gardens are tidy. As part of the town’s effort, Pocklington in Bloom members have a plant stall at the Burnby Hall Gardens specialist plant fair on Sunday (28 June) to raise money for extra floral displays.
