Penrith in Bloom Confirmed as a 2018 entry in the Large Town Section of Britain in Bloom
Penrith in Bloom are delighted to be a finalist in the Royal Horticultural Society Britain in Bloom competition 2018. In 2017 Penrith Bid won the best Bid Award and Joan Robinson was presented with the RHS Community Champion Award for her volunteer gardening activities in the town.
Penrith in Bloom showcases all the hard work and endeavour by businesses, residents and community groups in the town and proves that community spirit is alive and well in Penrith. It is this community involvement that contributes in making Penrith a cleaner, greener and more beautiful place to live, visit and shop and is the secret of our success.
Preparation work for this year’s Britain and Cumbria in Bloom has already begun; Penrith Bids floral displays have been ordered and designed, a stunning RAF Centenary flower bed is planned, the Penrith Gardeners and Eden Mencap continue to develop existing projects and many new volunteers have come forward. We look forward to an exciting productive year ahead.
