“It’s a celebration of our year,” said Starbeck in Bloom organiser Christine Stewart, after the group took Silver Gilt in the Britain in Bloom championships last weekend.

“We present the trophies won at the Starbeck fruit and vegetable show and announce the results of the Starbeck annual garden competition.

“It’s a way of saying thank you to everybody in Starbeck.

“For picking up that piece of litter, for tidying up those flowers. And for helping to make Starbeck such a wonderful place to live.”

Committee members, alongside award winners in the local competitions and those who have helped throughout the course of the year were thanked for their contribution.

“It really has been the year of Starbeck,” added Mrs Stewart.
