Plea for bloom efforts
Published at 19:24, Thursday, 14 June 2012
A WORKINGTON woman is calling for help in making the town look its best for the annual Cumbria in Bloom contest.
Margaret Jones, chairman of Workington in Bloom, wants townsfolk to do their bit by pulling up weeds, cleaning up dog mess and picking up litter.
Cumbria in Bloom judges will be in Workington on Thursday, July 5, to assess the town on a number of areas, including environmental responsibility, the appearance of business areas and parks, and community participation.
Last year Workington was awarded a silver gilt and Mrs Jones wants to see the town go for that elusive gold medal.
She said: “It’s all about the quality of the town, not just the flowers. I hope people can help to get it cleaned or just make more of an effort by not dropping litter.
“Anything that people can do will make Workington a better place for all of us.”
The judges’ route will take them along some of the main areas of Workington, including Northside, Stainburn, Moorclose Road, Westfield Drive, Harrington Marina, Vulcan Park and the Hub.
