Chairman of Chorley in Bloom Iris Smith said: "We planted a small community orchard at Cotswold House with 10 mixed fruit trees donated by the Mayoress and her husband Paul.

"The Mayor and volunteers from the Scouts and Chorley in Bloom helped with the planting."

She added: "We were extremely lucky with the weather. We had the work we did inspected every now and again by Tinker the dog who seemed to approve our work and kept us all amused.

"Thank you everyone for your hard work. Thanks also go the Chorley Council operatives who dug the holes for us."

All planted and ready to grow.

The next event for Chorley in Bloom will be a Biodiversity Event on Saturday, March 19, with Sir Lindsay Hoyle.
