Judging will take place in April and July so please make a special effort. Prizes were awarded to the winners at the Summer Flower Show in August.

The Addingham Garden Friends is a group of volunteers helping to enhance and maintain the village open spaces and public gardens, in conjunction with Bradford M.D.Council and Addingham Parish Council. The group has planning meetings on the first Wednesday of the month in the Old School (above the Library), Main Street, Addingham, at 10.00am and working parties on the second Wednesday of the month at 9.30am. and at other times as required.

New members are always welcome - if you would be willing to spend a little time helping beautify Addingham, please contact us.

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 awards HERE). Addingham was invited to represent Yorkshire in the national Britain 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.
