Egremont wins 

more awards at the annual 

Cumbria in bloom awards

Egremont Town Council is delighted to announce that Egremont town was awarded a Silver-Gilt medal Award in this year’s Cumbria in Bloom competition.
This equates to a score of 75 – 84% and is a massive improvement on last year’s Bronze Award and I am sure everyone will agree that the town has never looked so colourful. Egremont Town Council would like to thank their staff, especially our Curator, Nelson Shepherd, whose hard work, along with assistance from our lengthsman, Martin Winwood, residents from Calderwood residents and our regular litter pickers enabled us to achieve this award.
Thanks must also go to those who agreed to be part of Egremont’s Cumbria in Bloom entry; Bookwell School, Calderwood House, Egremont Youth Partnership, Egremont Fire Station, St Mary’s and St Michaels’s church, the De Lucy Centre and Mrs Shepherd.
Next year’s plans are already being discussed and Egremont Town Council will be “going for Gold”!
