Halifax in Bloom
Going for Gold in 2009
Halifax has been taking place in Yorkshire in Bloom since the year 2000 and has had some wonderful success,winning a Silver Gilt award in 2008 and 2007 and in 2006 winning a Silver award in Britian in Bloom. This year is our chance to 'bloom' as we go for the Gold Award. The benefits to the town of being involved with the Yorkshire in Bloom entry are unlimited.
- An increase in civic pride through local people taking on the planning and management of their local environment
- Long-term improvement in their local environment through planting, floral displays and high levels of cleanliness
- A boost to the local economy through increased tourism
- Regeneration of disadvantaged areas
- Stimulation of voluntary work and co-operation between community groups
"The baskets that Halifax in Bloom provide have been a welcome boost to the appearance of the outside of my shop and the NorthBridge area. They are very good value for money and I feel that if all shops around North Bridge and indeed the whole of Halifax were to have them then it would make the town a lot more presentable. The actual baskets themselves have always been of a top standard and I hope they will remain so and that more shops are made aware of the scheme."
Michael Bartle Falcon Pine
"Harveys have supported Halifax in Bloom since its inception. We feel that Halifax really benefits from this event and always looks so colourful and pretty, really showcasing some of the wonderful buildings in the Town Centre. We have always taken advantage of the ready planted hanging baskets which we don't even have to water as the Council do this for us! I think the more businessesthat get behind the event, the better - after all the more attractive the town, the more visitors!"
Tracy Harvey Harveys of Halifax
