Egremont once again is blooming. The main street has had such a massive make over and is looking bright, colourful and lovely once more.
This is thanks to the hard work of the town council employees – Geraldine Pritchard and Nelson Shepperd. They have worked tirelessly to make Egremont so lovely.
The planters have never looked so lovely and the flower hanging baskets are glorious. Bookwell junior school pupils have also been making their difference to a special part of the castle.
Calderwood house joined in and have placed flower pots outside their home to. Many of the towns residents and businesses also joined in along also.
Egremont’s bowling green has never looked so good- it an oasis of colour. They have worked for a year to make it look so fantastic.
Even the fire fighters have joined in. For the first time ever they have a fantastic floral arrangement at the entrance to the fire station.
Please make your way around the town and enjoy the views

Egremont fire fighters
win an award for
their charity works
Firefighters from Egremont Fire Station have received national recognition for their great charity fund-raising efforts.
They have been named runners-up in the national Team of the Year award category at the Fire Fighters Charity (FFC) Spirit of Fire Awards 2018.
Three members of staff from Egremont Fire Station and their partners, supported by Cumbria County Council’s Chief Fire Officer Steve Healey, attended the awards ceremony in London on Thursday 21 June. Afterwards they visited No 10 Downing Street for a post-awards reception hosted by Home Secretary Sajid Javid.
The team from Egremont Fire Station were shortlisted for the award in recognition of their tireless fund-raising work. In total, the team has raised nearly £6,000 for the Fire Fighters Charity last year alone.
They are one of the most successful fire stations in the UK for fund-raising, especially when it comes to textile recycling. They have twice won the FFC’s annual clothing and textiles recycling competition nationally, collecting 11 tonnes in January 2017 alone.
The Egremont team also runs a Santa’s grotto, routinely puts on charity car washes and supported firefighters and fire personnel affected by the Grenfell Tower fire by climbing Scafell Pike, the highest peak in England, in full fire kit.
Steve Healey, Cumbria’s Chief Fire Officer, praised the team’s efforts, saying: “The whole team at Egremont Fire Station do terrific work supporting the Fire Fighters Charity and they fully deserve this national recognition for their superb fund-raising efforts.”
The Spirit of Fire Awards celebrate the inspirational achievements and support that the FFC has received from individuals and teams throughout the country.
The charity provides a range of support services, including rehabilitation, recuperation, psychological and nursing, for the fire and rescue community nationally.
