It’s just over a month away now and the streets of Preston are being asked to deck themselves up – and the residents could win a prize.

The council is stumping up £500 for the best dressed street and two lots of £250 for the runner-ups.

Bunting, hanging baskets and innovative decorations will be looked at by the judges from 28 to 30 August when they make their visits.

They will be available to buy for £35 from August 8.

The pack includes 8m large flag bunting, 20 Guild balloons, 10 table flags, hats, 20 crown hats, a mixture of 80 crown hats, trumpet wavers, bow ties and masks. Plus a set of cups, plates and napkins in Guild blue.
