Town still sparkled, despite all the snow!

THE weather was not particularly seasonal, but representatives from Yorkshire in Bloom were still impressed with what they saw in Todmorden during the spring judging.

Winter returned on the day of the judges’ visit earlier this month, with snow falling in the area, but the Todmorden in Bloom members who showed them around town said they seemed to like what they saw.

Jean Butterworth, from Todmorden in Bloom, said: “I think the town looked as good as it could do in the snow.

“The judges were very happy to be here and they are looking forward to coming back in the summer.”

Jean thanked the Todmorden Vintner for providing a reception for the judges.

The results of the Yorkshire in Bloom contest will be announced in the coming weeks.
