Town launches blooms contest

Bakewell launched its annual In Bloom competition with a coffee morning.

The Bakewell In Bloom Group has been working with the community and local businesses to improve the area and make it attractive for residents and visitors. 

This year’s theme is ‘Food and Flowers’, which will reflect the historic market town. 

A spokesman for the group said: “We would like to thank everyone who contributed to a successful morning, including helpers, artists, and Lord Edward Manners for his support as Patron of Bakewell in Bloom.”

The competition seeks to improve the area through good horticultural practice.
