Shipley folk are invited to let their natural imaginations run wild and enter this year's Garden in a Wheelbarrow Competition for Shipley in Bloom.

The wheelbarrow or container can be made of anything including recycled materials and can be filled with everything from bedding to herbaceous plants, bulbs or vegetables.

Yvonne Crossley, Town Centre Manager, said: "Last year, we were overwhelmed by the number of entries submitted which was amazing and once again we are inviting the whole community to join in."

Coun Susan Hinchcliffe, Bradford Council's Executive Member for Employment, Skills and Culture, said: "Last year there were some really imaginative designs, I'm hoping that this year we'll have another good selection of entries. It's a great way for people to show their pride in Shipley and the local community."

The Yorkshire in Bloom campaign concentrates on three key areas, to promote horticultural achievement, environmental responsibility and community participation.

To enter fill in a simple entry form and bring along your wheelbarrow to Well Croft in Shipley on Saturday, 12 July at 12 noon.Entry forms are available at Shipley Town Hall and Shipley Library. Closing date for entries is Thursday, 10 July.
