Kendal Town Council

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 recognises the efforts of Kendal Communities via the Kendal in Bloom competition.

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

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.

Funding Support for Community Initiatives

The Kendal in Bloom Committee have a small budget to help support the community initiatives that are working towards improving their local area. For more information please contact Janine Holt on or telephone 01539 793495.

Kendal in Bloom 2022

The Kendal in Bloom Committee are pleased to announce the return of the Kendal in Bloom initiative for 2022.  We are taking a slightly different approach this year and have decided to have 2 main categories and a special category celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.   The first category is following the theme of Torchlight which is Scrap Heap Legends and we will also have a category for residential front gardens to enter.  We would like to encourage  community groups, home owners, organisations, allotments, like-minded people and businesses to get involved to improve the local area.
