Keswick in Bloom Keswick In Bloom About Us KIB Competition KIB Window & Events Committee Contact Us Beds and Planters About Us
Keswick in Bloom have been in existence for 22 years as a voluntary organisation.  The group came together originally to enter into the “Tidy Britain” competition.  The competition is now part of “Britain in Bloom” and is run by the Royal Horticultural Society.  Keswick enters the Small Town category in the Cumbria in Bloom regional competition, and has had great success over the years.  Each year Cumbria puts forward at least two communities into the national Britain in Bloom competition; Keswick has participated successfully in Britain in Bloom in the past, and has been selected again for 2010. Over the years Keswick in Bloom has taken responsibility for the planting and maintenance of various tubs, towers, mangers and beds around the town.  Planting takes place twice a year to provide displays for Spring and Summer.  Full details can be found on the Beds and Planters page by clicking here or on the button above. There are over 20 regular volunteers in Keswick in Bloom, many of whom are also Committee members.  Most are residents of Keswick, but we also have volunteers who are regular visitors to the town and are happy to help us.  We also receive help from organisations such as Keswick Rotary and Keswick Lions, particularly when heavy work is needed! St. Herbert’s School has a gardening club, and we are always pleased to see them helping with planting under the name Young Keswick in Bloom. Keswick has two main parks, Fitz Park and Hope Park. We work closely with the Parks staff, helping with maintenance if required, utilising the compost facilities, and benefiting from advice from James and his staff. If you would like to help us in any way please do get in touch.  Full details are on the Contact Us page.
