Yorkshire’s Bumper Crop at the Gardening ‘Oscars’

The Yorkshire in Bloom annual Awards Ceremony, the region's gardening 'Oscars', has been held on Tuesday 15th September at The Spa in Bridlington. And the results show that this year has produced a bumper crop of great entries.

Almost one hundred villages, towns and cities entered the competition in 2009, with over 160 community groups, businesses, schools and shopping centres also taking part.

Each of the entries, along with their mayors, local dignitaries and In Bloom judges, waited anxiously to hear the results of this year's competition.

The awards given out were Gold Rose, Silver Gilt Rose, Silver Rose and Bronze Rose in each of five categories (village, urban community, town, city and coastal) as well as many special and discretionary awards for businesses, hotels, pubs and visitor attractions, as well as young people’s awards.

Chris Beard Chairman of Yorkshire in Bloom, said: “We’re delighted that so many entries took part in this year’s competition. The standard achieved was high, and this ceremony celebrates all of the hard work that the communities have put in throughout the last year.”

He continued: “The In Bloom campaign is not just about flowers; it's communities working together to improve their local environments, and today we have seen just how effective this work is across the whole of Yorkshire.”

Top performers from the 2009 campaign, Woodlesford (Leeds), Cayton, Beighton, Hunmanby, Leeds and Scarborough, will now go on to represent the region in the prestigious national 'Britain in Bloom' competition in 2010.

Judging criteria for the competition are: horticultural achievement, environmental responsibility and community participation.
