Yorkshire in Bloom: Members of the Yorkshire in Bloom committee would like to say a big thank you to the residents of both Kirkby Malzeard and Laverton who made such an effort to make the villages look attractive and well cared for. There are particular thanks to the Laverton gentleman who tended the verges and riverbank, the “Kirkby Mowers”, those who lovingly tend the playing field and the churchyard, and to the WI members who distributed flyers reminding everyone of the time of the judging. Gardens, tubs, troughs and window boxes are extremely colourful, the Rose Garden and Pinfold carefully tended and the village businesses have played their part in brightening up their frontages. The judges’ comments will be received in September but the committee members stress that taking pride in the village and its surroundings is more important than the judges’ marks.
