Communities all across the region are already preparing the ground for the start of the new ‘Yorkshire in Bloom’ year. With over 100 entries expected to take part, (the biggest number of entries in any region in Britain) 2010 is set to be a bloomin’ good year for this environmental and horticultural campaign.
 
Entries are encouraged to put in their application to take part as soon as possible, as the closing date for entry is 6th February.
 
The campaign will be officially launched on 2nd February, at The Mansion House set within Roundhay Park in Leeds.
 
Chair of Yorkshire in Bloom, Chris Beard said: ‘Yorkshire in Bloom encourages communities to work to make a positive and lasting improvement to their local environment, for the benefit of local people - it is not just about planting flowers and hanging baskets! The campaign is open to all communities, villages, towns, cities and coastal resorts, and it also includes special ‘neighbourhoods’ categories to encourage everyone to get involved at a level that suits them. We would encourage everyone to have a go.”
Chris continued: “Communities involved with Yorkshire in Bloom can see a boost to their local economy through increased tourism and trade, and it’s a great way to promote sustainability, recycling, waste reduction and energy conservation.”
 
Leeds City Council will be the hosting the Annual Yorkshire in Bloom Awards Ceremony later in the year, at The Royal Armouries in Leeds. Councillor Frank Robinson, Chair of the Leeds Floral Initiative said: “We hope to see a lot of entries from the Leeds area, and that everyone will do well. In Bloom competitions aim not only to help brighten up our schools, businesses and gardens, but also to encourage a sense of pride of place and community spirit.
