You might think that the Yorkshire in Bloom competition is all about flowers and colourful gardens. That’s what we thought, until we were invited to look in detail at the competition’s aims and objectives. In fact, as far as open spaces such as Hyde Park Cemetery are concerned, the purpose of Yorkshire in Bloom is:

“To raise awareness of the increasing input that voluntary groups are having in the maintenance and care of sites within the community. To provide networking opportunities and support from the other similar community groups.”

Having considered the matter in some detail, the Friends of Hyde Park Cemetery decided to enter Yorkshire in Bloom 2017.

Judging will take place in June. In the intervening months, we would love you to come along to our Working Mornings to help us prepare for that time. Details of our Working Mornings can be found on our Events page.
