Kendal in Bloom
Each year the Kendal in Bloom Committee encourages communities, businesses and groups to take part in making Kendal a nicer place to live and work. The competition has three elements, community initiative, a school’s challenge and an allotments competition.
Greening up the Auld Grey Town
This year it was decided to follow the RHS call for the national transformation of grey areas into beautiful ‘green’ ones. We were looking for community groups, home owners, organisations, like-minded people and businesses to get involved and make a difference to the local area. It didn’t matter if the idea was big or small. Creating a community garden; transforming a garden into an attractive haven with pots and planters; arranging a local litter picks; working together to make the High Street in Kendal weed free, these were just some of the entries from 2017.
This year the challenge was titled ‘Walk on the Wild Side’. We wanted to encourage schools/youth organisations to create a space or project that is dedicated to ‘wildlife’. Building bug boxes, undertaking a survey of different insects seen in school, the schools were really creative with their ideas.
The Allotment competition for the ‘Best Plot in Kendal’. The first round of judging took place in the middle of July, with the second round of judging in August. The plot with the highest final score became the overall winner.
