The Barnetby in Bloom Group are extremely proud to announce that Barnetby Le Wold has been voted:
2nd Place in the CPRE Best Kept Villages Competition 2020!
The village is to be commended on its very tidy and attractive appearance, with a commendable absence of litter throughout the village. Every opportunity is made to provide community planting, with some excellent displays and very attractively painted wooden planters in various locations. The approach to the village benefits from some very attractive new signs.
The attractiveness of the village is enhanced by some colourful planting at the front of many properties, with some very good examples to be found at 16 and 22 Hillside, 25,35,67, and 76 King’s Road, 1 and 3 Windsor Way, 34, 42, 53, 79 and 87 Victoria Road, 30 and 58 St Barnabas Road, 1, 10, 16, 28 and 31 Woodland View, 7 Willow Grove, 6 Oak Grove, 20 Sycamore Close, 29 Queen’s Road, 8 and Fairview on Marsh Road, 1,28 and 32 Silver Street and 8, 21, 37 and 38 Railway Street.
There was also attractive floral displays outside many properties on Walker’s Close and outside the Medical Centre. The verges and hedges throughout the village were well-tended and there were a number of useful noticeboards around the village.
The excellent playground on Silver Street is set in a large playing field. The area benefits from a good range of equipment and an attractive area for younger children.
The war memorial on St Barnabas Road is an attractive Celtic cross but the site would benefit from attention. The area around St Barnabas Church is a particularly attractive feature of the village with some excellent planting
Barnetby Le Wold Parish Council would like to give special thanks to:
For all their continued hard work and dedication to the Barnetby in Bloom Group.
