Community and nature at one’


So as to get everyone, young and old, involved and excited as much as we are,  we have devised a number of competitions which will hopefully provide interest and fun for the entrants as much for the judges! The competitions are themed and are listed below.

For the talented young residents of Cartmel:

Diamond Jubilee Painting

If you are 11 years of age or below and inspired by the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, submit a painting, which illustrates your own interpretation, no more than 420mm x 300mm must be attached to your entry form, stating age, to be received no later than the 30 June 2012.

Best Poem

If you are 15 and under with writing skills and  you want to feel part of Cartmel In Bloom, submit a poem  no more than 250 words on what our village means to you. A completed form must be submitted by 30 June and your poem by the 15 September 2012.

A 1st prize of £20 and a 2nd prize of £10 will be awarded in vouchers in each competition

Adult competitions:

If you have a home or business in Cartmel, ‘Cartmel in Bloom’ is a great opportunity to think about your local environment and how attractive flowers, plants and gardens can enhance it. By actively supporting these competitions you will not only make your garden or business more appealing but also assist Cartmel with their entry in the ‘Britain in Bloom’ competition.


A 1st prize of £30 and a 2nd prize of £15 will be awarded in each category in cash or vouchers

All the competitions will be judged by a panel of three judges, one of whom will be a member of the Cartmel In Bloom Group
