Earlier this week I had the pleasure of presenting Brian Sofield with the Good Citizens Award for 2017.
For many years Brian has worked tirelessly and can be seen in all weathers making Barkisland bloom and keeping it well cared for. Brian was delighted to receive the award and asked that a special mention be given to the other members of Barkisland in Bloom, without whose help he would not be able to produce such lovely displays around the village.
Congratulations to Brian and a big thank you to Barkisland in Bloom for all their hard work.
Cllr Craig Johnson
