SHOP owners in one of Accrington's oldest streets are fighting a battle to make sure they are not forgotten.
The Warner Street group have collected a petition which they are submitting to Hyndburn Council as they believe it has ignored their concerns.
They are specifically asking the council why the street did not get colourful hanging baskets as part of the Floral Market Towns scheme which was introduced across the borough over the summer.
Displays were put on the street by the shop owners themselves a few years ago but had to be taken down to allow commercial vehicles better access.
Over the past week the shop owners have been displaying signs and collecting signatures for the petition complaining about the lack of floral displays.
Beverley Wilkin, who owns the Glory Hole with her husband Norman, said: "We want our hanging baskets and flower displays. You see them all over the town but not here."
Mrs Wilkin contacted the council to find out when Warner Street will receive baskets and was assured it would do so in the future - but it has not happened yet.
She said: "Warner Street is the oldest street in Accrington.
"I have owned a shop here for over 40 years and have seen a lot of changes. I just want to make sure the street is not forgotten."
So far 371 signatures from owners and customers have been collected.
Councillor Colette McCormack, who owns a dress agency in the street, also pledged her support.
She said: "The shopkeepers are trying really hard to build up the area.
"I am supporting this petition so the owners can make it a nice street. It seems like we are forgotten and this is not right."
Council leader Peter Britcliffe has invited shop owners to meet him to discuss their concerns.
He said: "We really appreciate the good high-quality shops in Warner Street.
"In some ways the Floral Market Town initiative has been a victim of its own success because there has been such a high demand for displays.
"Because of this we will be needing more money for the scheme next year to meet requests."
