Double Gold Award for Bakewell in Bloom

Congratulations go to Bakewell in Bloom on an impressive GOLD award for the second year running in the Small Town Category of the RHS East Midlands in Bloom competition.

The theme this year was "Bakewell; celebrating our past, present and future". Judging took place in July but the drizzle didn't stop the Bakewell in Bloom community volunteers showcasing a host of excellent horticultural, community and sustainable projects to its best during a two hour tour of the town.

The awards ceremony took place in Chesterfield and the judges made the comment that Bakewell should be very proud and celebrate this wonderful achievement.

Bakewell in Bloom encourages all businesses to use and display the gold award as a symbol of the town's success.

The Food, Flower and Bee trail with the Bakewell Show 200th anniversary theme "From Farm to Plate" also received a special judges award.
