Gilt-y as charged for Silver Pannett Park

FRIENDS of Pannett Park are celebrating the park’s Yorkshire in Bloom Silver Gilt award, declared at a ceremony in Harrogate today (20 Sept).

The prize marks a stunning achievement for the park, and Coun Joe Plant was on hand to accept the award at The Pavilions in Harrogate.

Speaking direct from the awards ceremony after the results were announced at 3.30pm, he said: “It’s our first time in Yorkshire in Bloom and it’s a credit to everybody who’s involved with the park.

“Between the Friends of Pannett Park, the Scarborough Council staff, and everyone who’s helped us, we’ve proved it’s a great partnership and it’s a fantastic achievement, so thanks to everybody who’s supported us.”

Whitby now eagerly awaits the results of the Britain in Bloom contest, to be announced on Sunday (25 Sept).
