Congratulations to Ulverston in Bloom who were awarded a Silver Medal at the Britain in Bloom 2018 Award Ceremony in Belfast.
2018 is the first year that Ulverston has been entered by Cumbria in Bloom in the RHS Britain in Bloom national awards which was very exciting! We were awarded a Silver Medal with some very interesting feedback both in the report and in our face to face supportive feedback with the judges the following morning. After an Ulverston in Bloom meeting and discussion with Ulverston Town Clerk and some Town councillors we will be using this excellent opportunity to elicit further involvement from both local businesses and the District and County Councils.The Awards Ceremony was held at the impressive Waterfront Centre, Belfast and the awards presented by Chris Bavin who had presented the Britain in Bloom BBC series recently.
This award is a reward for all the hard work carried out by Ulverston in Bloom volunteers and many other individuals and community organisations throughout the 2018 season as well as the wonderful plants supplied by Tythe Barn, Foxfield Garden Centre and Hill Foot Garden Centre. Ulverston in Bloom has been strongly supported by the Town Council, Ulverston BID, Townlands Trust and other sponsors.
