Mayor of Harrogate welcomes Bloomers to the city
1st March 2010
The Mayor of Harrogate Cllr Pat Jones will warmly welcome over 120 “Bloomers” to the Harrogate Event Centre on Tuesday 2nd March, for the Yorkshire in Bloom Entries’ Seminar. Over 50 entries will be represented from across the region, and Yorkshire in Bloom is the leading region with more entries than any other English region.
 
Cllr Jones said “It’s great to see so many volunteers getting involved in so many areas across the region. The hours put in by dedicated people all over Yorkshire is phenomenal and helps create a wonderful place for residents to live in but also to encourage tourists to visit.”
 
The event is being organised by Yorkshire in Bloom, supported by Yorkshire Forward, to help support the hundreds of entries in the annual campaign. Speakers will include Caroline Shead and Nina Muir from the Harrogate Council for Voluntary Services, who will give advice on fundraising and volunteer recruitment; Jean MacQuarrie from the Ackrills Series who will explain how groups can engage with the press and media; and Roger Burnett, Chair of the Britain in Bloom jury, who will discuss the amendments to the “Its Your Neighbourhood” campaign which is aimed at getting small projects and neighbourhood groups, allotment sites and “Friends of “groups involved.
 
There will also be display from two suppliers, Amberol and Plantscape, who provide hanging baskets and container to many bloom groups, as well as displays from RHS Harlow Carr, the Harrogate Flower Shows, and the Cone Exchange (Taylor’s Tea recycling centre)

About Yorkshire in Bloom
Yorkshire in Bloom has been in existence for over 40 years and has contributed to improving and enhancing Villages, Towns and Cities through floral displays for all of that period. However, in 2010 peoples aspirations have changed, there is now a greater emphasis placed on environmental factors such as conservation, recycling and sustainable planting. To keep abreast of these changes the competition has evolved to become an all-year round campaign encouraging people to take a greater responsibility for their environments. Yorkshire relies greatly on tourism and through involvement with the competition both at regional and national level, communities have seen tangible benefits in attracting visitors to the area. This in turn benefits the business and commercial sector and the local economy.
 
The Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom is the largest horticultural campaign in Europe, and each year it grows in size and importance and involves more people, groups and organisations creating lasting improvements to local environments.
 
The villages and towns in the region are judged in Spring and Summer. The large towns and cities in the region are judged in Summer along with the special categories which include public, private and charitable establishments, commercial premises, tourist and visitor attractions, hotels and guest houses, caravan and camping sites, new housing developments, youth environmental projects and further education establishments. There are approximately 100 entries in the village to city categories.
