So the rain actually stopped and the sun came out – ideal for Lyn, Young Mayor Lucas and myself to wander around Garstang looking at the wonderful flowering tubs, troughs and baskets as part of the judging team.
I never thought it could be so difficult awarding points in the various categories and using the designated criteria but with so many brilliant displays how do you decide the points. Thankfully the marking sheet gives you the clues.
Whatever the final results I have to say how beautiful Garstang looks and all the shops, restaurants, pubs and businesses must be congratulated on their efforts – GARSTANG looks a picture. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
