A former pond at Chorley Police Station has been transformed into a brand new beach setting by Police Cadets from Chorley, South Ribble and West Lancashire for this year’s Chorley in Bloom.Advertisement
Arranged by former Councillor and Mayor of Chorley, Iris Smith, Chorley in Bloom gives people the chance to create a flourishing outdoors patch in order to upkeep the town.
The new creation by the Cadets will be judged by the Royal Horticultural Society Judges.
The judges visited Chorley during Tuesday (13 July) to look at all the different displays across the area.

Louise Lucas, Cadet Co-ordinator, said: “The Cadets used their last meeting before the summer break to help Chorley in Bloom.
“They have all worked tirelessly with Iris and other community members, including the Sisters of Latter-day Saints and local businesses who have kindly provided plants, landscaping and a sign.”
In recognition of their good work, the Cadets were treated to a well-deserved pizza after.
Chief Inspector Chris Abbott and lead for cadets said: “All our cadets work extremely hard and this is just one of the ways they have been working with the local community. It certainly brightens up Chorley Police Station. We wish them the best of luck in the judging.”
