Spring is approaching in Knaresborough


After a long and bitterly cold winter, Knaresborough in Bloom is preparing busily for the visit of the judges from Yorkshire in Bloom. The judges Andy Mumford and Philip Stone arrive in Knaresborough at 1pm. Knaresborough has had a two year break from entering Yorkshire in Bloom so we are looking forward to welcoming the judges and showing them our beautiful town. The same judges will return in the summer so they will have a real insight into Knaresborough after two tours of the town.
Highlights of the spring tour will definitely be Aspin Pond which will be full of water after all the recent rain and bursting with life, wild flowers, birds and of course the Great Crested Newts together with Knaresborough Railway station. At the station we will meet the chair of the Friends of Knaresborough Railway Station which is doing much good work creating wildlife habitats as well as keeping the station looking neat and tidy.
We have just launched our “Be a Bee Friendly School” project and four local schools have signed up to this. We must all do our bit to ensure that bees have the right conditions to thrive. After all where would we be without the food that bees create through pollination? This isn’t a competition but a way of encouraging children to think about wildlife habitats and the effect humans are having on our planet.
