North West In Bloom Information

North West in Bloom is an annual competition, that comes under the umbrella of the National Britain in Bloom competition, where areas are judged by horticultural and environmental experts. The judges assess the competing areas on 3 key elements:

Horticultural Achievement


Environmental Responsibility


Community Participation


All the competing areas have a pro-active community group that steers the improvements and raises funds. Joining your local community groups, not only helps to improve your local environment, but it also enables you to meet new people and learn new skills.
