In past years we have entered the village in the Yorkshire
in Bloom competition with great success - after a string
of Silver Gilt (second grade) awards the village was awarded a top
GOLD award, and placed first in category, in 2011 (see list of
Addingham was invited to represent Yorkshire in the national
in Bloom 2012 competition against the 'best of the best'
similar sized villages from the other regions of the UK (from the Channel
Isles to Scotland and Northern Ireland) and we were delighted to be awarded
a Silver Gilt award in this prestigious competition. See the Britain in
Bloom Judges full report HERE.
We have decided not enter Yorkshire in Bloom again for now, but to concentrate on maintaining and improving the village gardens. We are progressively re-planting with perrennials and shrubs to replace many of the seasonal bedding areas - this permanent planting will be labour and cost saving. The next area to be changed is in the Hen Pen.
