Make a Difference to Your Community
11th March 2010
Yorkshire in Bloom is holding a series of Community Development Roadshows throughout March to encourage more people to make a big difference to their local communities, and the environment.
The Roadshows, supported by Yorkshire Forward, the region’s development agency, are open to everyone interested in improving both their community and their local environment. They will be held on the following dates; 16th March at The Source in Meadowhall, Sheffield; 18th March at The Railway Museum in York; and 23rd March at The Railway Station in Richmond.
Each event begins at 10.30am with ‘welcome and coffee’, followed at 11.00am by a Yorkshire in Bloom presentation and finishes at 12.15 pm with a light lunch.
Almost 100 communities across Yorkshire, the largest number of entries of any region in the UK, currently take part in the ‘in Bloom’ campaign and enjoy its many horticultural and environmental benefits. It is hoped that interested individuals, community groups, local Councils and Parish Councils will attend the event being in their area to find out how they too can get involved.
Persons interested in attending any of the events should contact Brendan Mowforth by email at email@example.com email, or by telephone 01484 661 866.
Explaining more about the campaign, Yorkshire in Bloom Executive Member, Brendan Mowforth, said: “Yorkshire in Bloom is a charitable organisation that represents the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom campaign across the Yorkshire region. It encourages communities to work together to make a positive and lasting improvement to their local environment, for the benefit of local people. It’s 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. 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.”
