For the first time ever the village has entered the Northumbria in Bloom competition. We hope to impress judges by using natural planting of wild flowers and by enhancing projects that are already in the village by adding floral touches.
We’ll reporting regularly on progress so please come back and visit the site often.
Northumbria in Bloom is the voluntary regional organisation that administers the Britain in Bloom competition in Northumberland, Durham, Tyne & Wear and Teesside.
“The show of flowers in otherwise drab grey streets, the landscaping of derelict and marginal land, the enhancement of our towns and pride in our villages is the aim and indeed the success of the competition”.
Another piece of news is that the Skinningrove History Group now has a brand new web site that is well worth checking out. www.skinhist.co.uk
