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.
To enter your street visit the council website and fill out the form.
For streets, schools and community groups arranging street parties for the Guil there’s also been a Guild party pack released.
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.
To reserve a pack email firstname.lastname@example.org.
