Harrogate in Bloom Members
We are so proud of Harrogate’s reputation as the ‘floral town of the North of England’ – the only town to have won ‘Entente Florale’ twice (Europe in Bloom)!
In recent years, the In Bloom criteria places just as much emphasis on environmental and community involvement as it does on floral/horticultural excellence, so in 2015 we piloted the ‘Team Harrogate’ name to enter the Yorkshire in Bloom competition, bringing together under one umbrella the many local groups that have worked with Harrogate in Bloom and Harrogate Borough Council.
The judges were most impressed with the diversification and Harrogate was awarded a gold medal and put forward for the Britain in Bloom competition the following year. Again, Harrogate was awarded a gold medal and was category winner.
Six years later because so many others have chosen to use our ‘Team Harrogate’ name – we are now to be known as Harrogate in Bloom!
