Sponsors Cartmel In Bloom!


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.

Awards galore in Cumbria In Bloom 2014!


In Cumbria In Bloom, Cartmel won the trophy for the tidiest village together with the trophy for the Best Sustainable Development for the region.  To add to these awards we also gained a Silver Gilt and Runner - up in the Best Village category.  In the The Young People's Award category, the pupils of the Cartmel Primary School were complimented for the design and construction of three mosaic panels adorning the Cartmel bus shelter and which in the judges opinion created a bit of local history by accurately depicting aspects of rural life of the area

Both the Cartmel Primary and Priory Schools won awards in the Schools Gardening Competition.


The new Priory Church Garden, the Town End Meadow borders and the River Eea Walkway & Wildflower Scheme all won awards under the RHS Its Your Neighbourhood scheme.  


In Britain In Bloom,  we came away with Silver.


The judges commented amongst other:


‘Cartmel is a beautiful village in which to live and visit. The Bloom Group here are engaging in environmental and floral projects that make a real difference, brightening up and improving the place for all’.
