The Mayor of Blackburn, Lancashire presented Mitchell’s scaffolding and Darwen Youth Group with 2nd prize for their entry in this year’s darwen Gala.
22 entrants vied for the coveted first place. Mitchell's with their first ever entry themed around Hollywood movie stars past and present worked hard to put this together.
The Youth Group based at Darwen Vale High School, Lancashire meet every Wednesday, to learn the techniques for screen acting with Scott Wright of Coronation Street, Manchester fame heading the Group.
Mitchell’s had the opportunity to support the group according to Spokes person Karen Turner and became involved thanks to Granddaughter Ashley Turner’s involvement with the group.

Karen said “the day was a great success and being awarded second prize was the icing on the cake” the youth group and Mitchell's worked very hard to put together the float.
Christine Hargreaves, family member and friend, said they were only able to begin dressing the wagon that morning. And due to the distance had to take the vehicle to the start up point before they could begin but the end result had been worth the effort.
