Judging Day, Saturday 15th July 2017
Malton welcomed the Yorkshire in Bloom judges on Saturday 15th July. During the tour we showed the judges the areas of the town we have either created, maintained or improved with the help of businesses, sponsors, volunteers, Malton WI, Malton and Norton Tidy Group, Derwent Diggers, Malton Flower Club, Malton Town Council, Norton Town Council and Ryedale District Council (Streetscene).
The effort put into our submission has been immense, often with volunteers giving up evenings, weekends and week days to ensure we gave our best at all times. No one has wanted to take their foot off the pedal in fear of letting Malton down.
The judges gave positive feedback about the tremendous sense of community and the standard of our displays - which fills us with a mix of pride and relief that we are on the right path.
To ensure we can maintain and grow moving forwards, we are interested in hearing from individuals, community groups and clubs that would like to be involved with Malton in Bloom moving forwards.
With special thanks to Nick Webster for the photos of Judging Day!
