Dave Khan said of his decision to sponsor the campaign for the next two years:
On a personal level, I have been touched by the unpaid time and personal effort of
all the volunteers in trying to enhance the physical environment of the village and
improve community life. As a businessman I recognise that beyond the ample natural
beauty of the area my customers are looking to spend time in a village that is well
maintained, vibrant and inviting. The Cartmel In Bloom volunteers play an important
role in this and I am very happy to support them in their efforts.
Cartmel’s pupils embrace this year’s ‘edibles’ theme and are helped to grow their
own by a Head Chef of 2 Michelin star restaurant L’Enclume at the restaurant’s farm!

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’ - Tiffany Hunt, Chair
Simon’s Spring Offerings
We joined forces with our very own two Michelin Stared chef Simon Rogan of L’Enclume
restaurant, to create a dish in celebration of Edible Britain, which is this year’s
theme for RHS’ Britain In Bloom Award. Simon said:
“The dish perfectly represents our food philosophy, drawing on the very best of our
own seasonal produce. It’s a real celebration of stunning seasonal ingredients and
captures the theme of Edible Britain perfectly.”
