The Muck and Magic judges, who visited over 160 private and community gardens, floral businesses, schools and caravan sites over the summer described the class of 2018 as one of the best.

They also complimented entrants on their efforts to look after their blooms in spite of the intense heat.

Volunteers across the borough were also praised for their hard work within local communities and the hours they dedicate to make the area look welcoming.

Friends of Seamer Village scooped the Muck and Magic award for Best Village Green and Whitby in Bloom were recognised as Champion Growers for their floral baskets and boxes project.
