Volunteers wanted for Sunday tidy-up in Richmond

Volunteers are wanted for the latest tidy-up of Richmond ahead of a visit by the Yorkshire in Bloom judges.

Residents helping to remove weeds and litter will meet on Sunday outside the Town Hall at 1oam.

The tidy-up is taking place from 10am until 1pm but any time you can give would be appreciated.

All you need is a hoe scraper and brush.

The Original Richmond, Richmond Business and Tourism Association has entered the town into the Yorkshire in Bloom competition, which is one of 16 regional RHS Britain in Bloom campaigns around Britain.

It is hoped the competition will raise the profile of the town as a beautiful place to live and visit.

A BBC TV crew filming for Britain in Bloom has visited Richmond as the town prepares for the competition.
