Cartmel is excited to be welcoming the Cumbria In Bloom judges on 10 July 2015!

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

This year’s special theme

In the William Marshal colours

In celebration of the 800th year from the sealing of the Magna Carta, this year we have decided to plant in certain areas of the village in the colours of the shield of William Marshal, the founder of the Cartmel Priory and a key instigator of its sealing by King John.

2014 Judging

Join us to celebrate the Magna Carta anniversary on Saturday and Sunday 26th and 27th of September at the grounds of Fairfield Lodge.  

We will be selling beeswax candles, Yorkshire lavender bags made by our volunteers, herbs grown in the Cartmel allotments and residents’ gardens and fresh bunches of herbs for your kitchen.

A face painter will be there to paint faces in appropriate medieval themes.
