Villagers are hoping Friday the 13th doesn’t prove unlucky for their chances in an annual competition.

That was the day three judges from Northumbria in Bloom paid their second and final visit to Lesbury this year, to review the work carried out by 21 keen volunteers.

The tour covered a number of areas in both Lesbury and Hipsburn, including floral displays at the Coach Inn, Lesbury Post Office and Alnmouth Railway Station.

Lesbury was awarded Silver Gilt in 2017. The results for this year will be announced on September 12.
