Wyre in Bloom

Each year, the Royal Horticultural Society holds the Britain in Bloom competition. It is a year-round competition that allows groups to compete on a regional or national level by using gardening to transform their communities.

Initially, neighbourhoods and groups will enter their regional In Bloom awards and some winners will be entered into the Britain in Bloom awards. They also look for entries from tourist attractions, hotels, pubs and shopping centres.

The aim of the competition is to encourage the improvement of our surroundings through the imaginative use of trees, shrubs, flowers and landscaping. It also aims to achieve a litter free and sustainable environment.

On Wednesday 19 October teams of volunteers from across the North West came together to celebrate their achievements in the North West in Bloom Awards 2022.

Wyre has managed a spectacular haul of awards this year and we want to thank all the groups and volunteers who work so hard to make Wyre look so blooming beautiful!
