Kendal in Bloom

Kendal Town Council are proud to co-ordinate Kendal’s planters (using Peat Free compost) and bloom competitions.

Each year the Town Council regognises the efforts of Kendal Communities via the Kendal in Bloom competition and the ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign – more info here.

Kendal enters the ‘Cumbria in Bloom’ competition each year and is proud to have won Silver and Silver Gilt on several occasions.

In 2016 Kendal was entered in the prestigious Britain in Bloom competition, winning the Silver Gilt award in the Large Town category. Kendal was one of only ten areas from across the UK chosen to compete in the Large Town category of the awards. Kendal’s medal, the second highest available, confirms its position as one of the greenest and most beautiful large towns in the country.

The town was further honored by RHS judges who awarded it the first ever ‘RHS Britain in Bloom Award for Overcoming Adversity’. The award was given in recognition of the way the Kendal community recovered after the devastating floods.

All bloom achievements are only possible due to partner support and sponsorship of local businesses for the town’s planters and baskets. It is with their help that the Kendal floral displays look wonderful throughout the year and makes Kendal an even more attractive place to work, live and visit.

If you or your business would like to make a donation or sponsor one of the floral display, or perhaps sponsor a category in the KiB Competition please contact us.
