The Town Council’s Llandudno in Bloom Committee is made up of representatives from businesses and local community and resident’s groups as well as town councillors and local authority officers from Conwy County Borough Council.

The Bloom Committee oversees Llandudno’s entry to the Royal Horticultural Society’s Wales in Bloom competition as well as organising the Town Council’s Llandudno in Bloom Competition and overseeing the Town Council’s Hanging Basket scheme for businesses and residents each year.

 

 

Each year Llandudno enters the Royal Horticultural Society’s Wales in Bloom competition. Cities, Town Villages across Wales participate in the competition to show off their achievements in environmental responsibility, community participation and horticultural achievement. Other entries are also invited from Caravan Parks, Pubs, Restaurants and Holiday Homes. The Llandudno in Bloom Committee works in partnership with Conwy County Borough Council, Businesses, Residents, Schools and Community Groups on a number of planting schemes and environmental projects as part of the Town’s entry.

In July, judging took place in this year’s competition. The judge was taken on a tour of the town to see the work taking place to maintain an attractive environment for the benefit of residents and visitors alike. Stops included Ysgol San Sior, The Great Orme, Happy Valley, Haulfre Gardens and The Promenade. The judge also had the opportunity to meet representatives of the various community groups involved in the campaign, who had been invited to show case their work at the Town Hall.

These were: a new flower Bed in Queen’s Park, the community vineyard project in Haulfre Gardens, the memorial garden at 418 (Aberconwy) Squadron ATC and Ysgol San Sior.
