North West in Bloom encourage local communities to improve and care for their local environment through imaginative planting of trees, shrubs, flowers and landscaping, conservation, and recycling projects and also to address the issues that blight our streets such as litter, graffiti and vandalism.
Fleetwood enters this competition annually under the ‘Large Town’ Category and a working group made up of Town Council Officers; Elected Members and Volunteers meet to plan, organise, and deliver a spectacular display for residents and visitors to the town to enjoy.
The competition stimulates volunteer work with residents, community groups and schools willing to get involved. Participation promotes a tremendous sense of community and pride in our town, but above all, it is lots of fun!
In 2017 we were lucky enough to be awarded a Silver Gilt award with a ‘not far off outstanding’ comment made on the judge’s report.
This year the working group aspire for a Gold Award and have decided to theme the entry on World War One, choosing a red and white colour scheme for the plants. As in previous years, schools and community groups will be invited to help with some of the planting between the end of May, and throughout June…. watch out for information of our community planting sessions if you want to get involved.
