The aims of North West in Bloom are to encourage local communities to improve and care for their local environment through imaginative planting of trees, shrubs, flowers and landscaping, conservation and recycling projects and to eliminate eyesores that blight our streets such as litter, graffiti and vandalism.
The competition is based on three RHS core themes:-
By taking part in the competition local communities can benefit from: an increase in civic pride, a long term improvement in their local environment, a boost to the local economy including regeneration of run down and disadvantaged areas as well as a boost to tourism.
In addition the competition stimulates volunteer work whilst addressing sustainability, recycling, waste minimisation and conservation issues.
Overall it promotes a tremendous sense of community and, above all, fun.
