Keighley in Bloom awards given out
7:00am Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
Keighley is blooming when it comes to floral displays.
And some of the town’s best have been recognised when Keighley in Bloom staged its awards evening at the North Street civic centre.
Prizes were handed out to winners in this year’s best-kept garden contest, which attracted nearly 40 entries.
And some of the local victors in the Yorkshire in Bloom competition also received their accolades.
More than 60 people attended the evening, including the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Khadim Hussain, and Keighley Mayor Councillor Sally Walker.
Mike Cunningham, of the Keighley in Bloom Partnership, said: “It was a really good night.
“The standards in the best-kept garden contest this year were very high and the container gardens were brilliant, but it was a good summer.
“And one of the biggest cheers of the night was for the war memorial, which won in Yorkshire in Bloom.”
