Filey In Bloom Volunteers To Represent Yorkshire

Filey in Bloom

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 3:03pm 8th February 2018.

Filey in Bloom volunteers have been nominated to represent Yorkshire in this year’s National Britain in Bloom Competition.

Following their Gold Medal winning performance in the regional heats of Yorkshire in Bloom last summer, the group are now setting their sights higher as they compete, once again, on the national stage. 

In 2016 Filey were awarded a Gold Medal by the Royal Horticultural Society judges and Chairman of Filey in Bloom, Marion Wright, is hoping that the town can keep up this excellent standard.

She said:

"We are very excited and proud to be representing Yorkshire in the Small Coastal category of Britain in Bloom.

But we know how much hard work lies ahead of us.

However, our wonderful volunteers will pull out all the stops over the next few months and with the help of all the community groups in the town, and all the partner organisations we work with, I'm sure we will do Filey proud, once again, when the results are announced in autumn".

Filey in Bloom are currently working on organising working parties, social events and fund raising activities for the coming year and would like to hear from anyone who is able to help in any way.

Mrs. Wright added:

"You don't have to be an expert gardener to help out.

Just a willingness to get involved in whatever way you can would help us greatly.

Our ultimate aim is to keep Filey on the national bloom "map" by making sure our beautiful town is at its best throughout the summer but especially when the Royal Horticultural Society Judges visit us in early August."
