                     Windermere In Bloom Competition

     Trophy Winners



Each year, the Windermere Town Council holds a "Windermere In Bloom Competition" which is open to all businesses, private dwellings, and Community Amenities within the Parish of Windermere.  This competition enables businesses and private households to show off their horticultural skills, not only for their own enjoyment, but also to make the area more enjoyable for the holidaymaker and the locals.

The hanging baskets that are attached to various lamp-posts throughout the village were done by Horticare of Kendal.  The planters and and 'railing troughs' were planted up by Continental Landscapes.  During 2014, a further number of the hanging baskets and planters have been sponsored by local businesses at the suggestion of the Windermere & Bowness Chamber of Trade and it is hoped that this will be repeated in 2016.

This years' Award Ceremony attracted over 120 residents, business people, Councillors and other interested contributors.  Both the Mayor, Cllr. Alan Winrow and the Acting Chair of Windermere In Bloom, Cllr. Sandra Lilley gave short address's on on the year's 'happenings.'  Adrian Faulkner (Cumbria in Bloom Management Committee Member and RHS Brand Group Member) gave a brief outline as to what the RHS's "It's Your Neighbourhood" campaign was about and presented the 7 participants with their awards.

The Awards Ceremony took place on the 25th September 2015 at the Hydro Hotel, Bowness.
