JUDGES from Yorkshire in Bloom have been running the rule over eye-catching floral displays in Barwick in Elmet.

Barwick in Bloom’s members are hoping to come up trumps in the large village section of this year’s competition.

Sites that were given the once-over by the judges on their visit included the chapel garden at Barwick Methodist Church.

Barwick in Bloom chairman John Tinker said: “It all seemed to go very well, we were extremely pleased.

“One of the judges had visited seven years ago and was impressed with the difference we have made.”

The results of the competition are due to be announced in September.
