What’s it about?
The original ethos for Bolton in Bloom was to keep the village looking as attractive as possible and to coordinate our entry into the Cumbria in Bloom competition. Over the last few years the Bolton in Bloom Committee and its supporters have been very successful at both and a history of what has been achieved can be viewed by clicking this link – History
The Committee have now set up a forum known as Bolton Gardeners to provide mutual support for Bolton residents interested in gardening. A page dedicated to the Bolton Gardeners Forum can be accessed from the main menu or by clicking on this link – Forum
Unfortunately Covid-19 has prevented many activities including meetings. It is hoped that we will eventually retrn to normal business, but in the meantime the committee and a number of willing volunteers have undertaken some work in the village. The updates below show what has been done.
The Cumbria in Bloom competition has not taken place this year, so communities have been invited to submit suitable projects on-line. The village has submitted the stone bench project, click here to see the excellent submission
