Blooming Symphony

The Northumbria In Bloom regional adjudicators, who recently visited Saltburn for the summer judging of the floral competition, were greeted with a symphony of sound and colour as the choir from Saltburn Junior School were invited along to sing to them.
Green fingers are now firmly crossed, as residents will have to wait until September for the outcome of the visit. Saltburn in Bloom co-ordinator Jackie Taylor commented on the fact that it was a good day and the weather was kind.
She added: “The judges went all around the town, taking in the allotments, the new planting at Albion Terrace and the picnic area at Marine Parade.
“We have around 350 hanging baskets around the town, bought through fundraising and sponsorship.”
She added: “We want to thank everyone in the town for their efforts and also Redcar and Cleveland Council and Saltburn, Marske and New Marske parish council.”
National judges from Britain in Bloom are due to visit Saltburn in August.
