The 26th Cumbria In Bloom Award Ceremony was held at the Kendal Town Hall under the sponsorship of the South Lakeland District Council and the Kendal In Bloom group who supplied the floral displays.

Alan Heath (Chair of Cumbria In Bloom) introduced the patrons Peter Howarth and Olive Clarke, Stephanie Eynon who is the Community Horticultural Manager of the Royal Horticultural Society and Councillor Jo Stephenson, Chairman of South Lakeland District Council who opened the award ceremony.  Cllr. Stephenson remarked “the achievement by Cumbria In BlKendal Town Halloom had transformed the communities within the county over the years and was convinced that the environmental side had been enhanced.” 

 

Stephanie Eynon passed on the good wishes of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) and thanked CinB for the invite to attend.  She went on to summarise the idea behind the RHS’s ‘Its Your Neighbourhood’  (IYN)  by saying “over 1,600 nationwide communities are taking part this year and hoped that the horticultural expertise from the “In Bloom” groups would be passed down to the IYN groups.” 

 

Alan Heath in his opening address remarked:

“Cumbria in Bloom is an independent charity and a regional organisation within Britain In Bloom. The participants are the most important part of Cumbria in Bloom and share in the largest environmental project Cumbria and the United Kingdom.  Taking part in the competitions and assessments this year are 34 ‘In Bloom’ groups, 21 ‘Its your Neighbourhood’ groups, 21 Tourism Establishments, 47 special nominations and in its first full year 43 schools taking part in the Schools Gardening Competition.  Your feed-back forms show that other community groups, businesses, and individuals are linked with you and support the many projects you have undertaken.  

The judges have stated that your standards of achievement are high.  You should be proud of the benefits you have brought to your communities and congratulate yourselves.  It is hoped you all to have enjoyed the experience of taking part in the Cumbria in Bloom activities. The lack of litter, unbroken seats, dogs under control, are all important BUT the most visible sign of an ‘In Bloom’ project will continue to be the uplifting garden features of colour, calm and sense of wellbeing.   

One of the benefits of entering Cumbria in Bloom is to be nominated as a representative in the prestigious Britain in Bloom Finals competition.  These will be chosen from our best entries. 2014 will be the 50th anniversary of the Britain in Bloom events and those who do best in next year’s competition may be selected to represent Cumbria in this special anniversary year. So, it is time to make a start.   

We continue to promote the ‘Its Your Neighbourhood’ assessment scheme which is run by the Royal Horticultural Society.  Stephanie Eynon will present the certificates to the ‘Outstanding’ groups. You will be able to meet and talk to Stephanie at the end of the ceremony. 

The Cumbria Schools Gardening Competition is beginning to flourish. Toddlers to senior school pupils take part and many are involved with after School Gardening Clubs. They share this with teachers, parents, friends, other schools, community groups and business supporters. 

Judging shows that the school grounds are a central part in the school curriculum.  There were some imaginative garden features to celebrate the Queens Diamond jubilee and the London Olympic Games. Floral designs of the crown, the torch, and the crops from the veg garden were matched with their origins from Olympic nations. We hope that schools gardening will enthuse a new generation to care for their surroundings.  The Cumbria in Bloom judges, judged, assessed and marked 167 entries and nominations. We are indebted to our senior and assistant judges who give their time for free to judge, assess, and make comments for our entries.  A plea for more good judges was made.  The Cumbria in Bloom Management Committee work closely together as a team and thank them all for their hard work and support that has made it possible to deliver the competition and this award ceremony? 

Cumbria in Bloom acknowledges the generous gifts of support and funds from all our sponsors. In particular this year; Cumbria County Council area committees of Copeland and South Lakes, Copeland and Allerdale Borough Councils, Lake District Estates, Newton Rigg College, Dalston Parish Council, Royal Horticultural Society and the continued support from parish and district councils.” 

 

Olive Clarke, OBE; JP; DL (Patron) closed the proceedings with a rallying call to all the participants to spread the word for CinB and its various competitions and also to those who represented the various authorities of the financial plight of the Charity.
