One of the major priorities of Barrow upon Humber Parish Council has been to improve the public open spaces of our parish. In 2017, the hard work of the Barrow in Bloom group earned the village a Silver Gilt award in the East Midlands in Bloom competition and second place in the CPRE Best Kept Village Competition.
Once things are back to normal, plans are being made to enter these competitions in 2021.
We are looking for a small group of people to co-ordinate the entry. This simply means getting a portfolio together (previous ones are available to follow), liaising with our gardener Jon Nettleton and showing the judges round (takes about 2 hours). If you are interested, please let the Clerk or one of the councillors know.
