By Joshua Robinson –
Cleckheaton in Bloom, a voluntary organisation invested in the natural and floral beauty of the town, have been awarded for the work that they completed on the outdoor space at the Cleckheaton Library.
The group, established in 2021, aims to help improve Cleckheaton for residents and visitors alike through their work and maintenance of the town’s greenery.
One of their latest endeavours was the work they completed on the grounds surrounding the library building.
Working alongside the Rotary Club of Cleckheaton, the volunteers installed a ‘Jubilee Arch’ to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.
They are now tirelessly working on completing a new Nature Trial which will include a reading corner for people and bug hotels.
The Cleckheaton In Bloom Facebook page describes them as: “A community group maintaining the existing flower beds and intend to upgrade the town’s floral beauty.”
After impressing the local residents with their work, Cleckheaton In Bloom was invited to participate in the annual ‘Yorkshire in Bloom’ competition, recognising the amount of progress they made in such a short time.
Yorkshire in Bloom is another voluntary organisation that administers the RHS Britain In Bloom campaign in North, South, East, and West Yorkshire.
RHS Britain In Bloom is the largest horticultural campaign in Europe, where each year more people and groups are joining their initiative to create lasting improvements to local environments. Villages and cities are judged in spring, summer, or both for their horticultural achievements.
In addition, Cleckheaton In Bloom was also awarded ‘Gold’ in the Discretionary Yorkshire Rose Awards for ‘Best New Entry’.
Cleckheaton In Bloom has also been graded as ‘Thriving’ in the It’s Your Neighbour’ at the recent Britain in Bloom awards.
