Our aim is to encourage and bring about a greater sense of shared pride in Cartmel and its community.

Through our Cumbria and Britain In Bloom activities, we hope to strengthen the links between the various groups involved in village life for the benefit of the residents and to enhance the enjoyment of the visitors to Cartmel.

Our warmest thanks to all the volunteers, sponsors, friends and supporters without whom there would be no Cartmel In Bloom’ - David Crabtree, Chair
