Grimsby in Bloom
IN BLOOM GOLD
For several years the Society has supported the Gold Award Winning Cleethorpes in Bloom, and is a founder member of the Gold Award Winning Grimsby in Bloom.
There is no conflict of interest here.
The Royal Horticultural Society, which sponsors the "In Bloom" competitions, classifies Cleethorpes as a seaside resort, while Grimsby is a large town/small city. As both towns are judged in different categories, Grimsby in Bloom complements rather than competes with Cleethorpes in Bloom.
The Civic Society joined Grimsby in Bloom's award winning entries to the 2008 and 2009 Cleethorpes Carnivals. A flotilla of wheelbarrows sponsored by individual community groups stormed the two and a half mile route.
Grimsby in Bloom is community led. Although its committee is taken from members of the Society, North East Lincs Lions, the Rotary Club of Grimsby, NELC and the Grimsby Telegraph it is mainly run by volunteers, gardeners and local people who wish to make a positive change to our great town through the medium of horticulture.
Something is happening with Grimsby in Bloom every week of the year, so the best way to keep up with events in to check the website here at Grimsbyinbloom.co.uk.
