Kendal Town Council

Kendal in Bloom

Kendal Town Council is proud to co-ordinate Kendal’s planters, hanging baskets and floral displays (using Peat Free compost).

Each year the Town Council recognises the efforts of Kendal communities via the Kendal in Bloom competition.

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

All bloom achievements are only possible through the support of partners for the town’s planters and baskets. It is with their help that the Kendal floral displays look wonderful throughout the year and make 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.

Funding for Community Initiatives

If your community gardening initiative is meant to improve our town’s green spaces, you may be eligible for a small grant. For more information please contact Janine Holt on or telephone 01539 793495.
