Ormskirk Advertiser - - Active -

HES­KETH Bank Parish Coun­cil’s Best Kept com­pe­ti­tion con­cluded with the an­nounce­ment that 14 Bec­consall Lane has won the Front Gar­den Cat­e­gory.

The an­nounce­ment comes just a week af­ter the whole of Bec­consall Lane was crowned Best Kept Street for 2020 in the com­pe­ti­tion that has been run­ning for six years.

The judges agreed on 14 Bec­consall Lane as the win­ner from a rather long short­list of 18.

Sue Wat­son said: “This was a dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to make with pre­vi­ous win­ners, May Cot­tage and 34 Bec­consall Lane, against some ex­cel­lent new­com­ers. How­ever 14 Bec­consall Lane just man­aged to tip the bal­ance this year.”

Their prize is a VIP din­ner for two.

Hes­keth Bank Parish Coun­cil also an­nounced there will not be an over­all win­ner for the Al­lot­ments cat­e­gory this year, with judges de­cid­ing that all those short­listed were wor­thy of Com­men­da­tions.

The parish coun­cil thanked the judges, Sue Wat­son, leader of the lo­cal U3A Gar­den­ing Group, and Liz Tyson from Lands­downe Camp­ing.

Cllr Ian Mo­ran, leader of West Lancashire Bor­ough Coun­cil (in­set) has pledge to fight any plans to build a lorry park in the bor­ough
