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
For the talented young residents of Cartmel:

than the 30 June 2012.

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
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.
