We are delighted to announce that the Villages received the Silver Gilt Award in
the Yorkshire in Bloom Competition 2013.
The Yorkshire in Bloom judges, Judith and Maurice Baren, visited Great and Little
Preston on Wednesday 17th July 2013 and were given a tour of the area by members
of the In Bloom Group. The Group were delighted to welcome the judges and to show
them the results of all the hard work that has taken place over the past year, especially
the newly created Jubilee Garden and the recently constructed Meadow Wood Walk. The
comprehensive tour, which included Glencoe, Bowers Row, St Aidan's Country Park,
Little Preston and Great Preston, was followed by a buffet lunch in the Village Hall.
The judges, who were a pleasure to host, were able to chat with some local residents
and learn a little about our environment, our history and our heritage. We enjoyed
their visit - and we hope they did too.
The Christmas Lights will be switched on at 18:30 on Berry Lane, Great Preston, on
Thursday 5th December. There will be a short Carol Service which will be accompanied
by the Preston Players. Refreshments will be provided afterwards at The New Inn.
