What is Bloom and Grow?

Bloom and Grow is Oldham’s entry into the Royal Horticultural Society’s annual North-West in Bloom Awards.

However, the RHS campaign is about so much more than flowers and plants, it’s about the whole community working together to improve our towns, neighbourhoods, alleyways, open spaces, gardens, roads and pavements. For more information on the regional campaign, visit www.northwestinbloom.com

The focus of our campaign is to help us all to feel proud of our neighbourhoods and to bring communities together. It aims to support people so they can play a vital role in keeping the borough looking beautiful, clean and attractive to residents and visitors alike.

This year’s theme was Greening Grey Britain but we incorporated a circus theme to coincide with Circus250, a national campaign celebrating 250 years of circus. 

Keep in touch

Thanks to everyone who has been involved with this year’s Bloom and Grow campaign. We’ve done #ourbit to keep the borough looking competition ready and you’ve certainly done #yourbit by entering our various competitions.

Even though the judges have been to have look at the town and we wait for the result, keep posting your images on our social media using the hashtag #OldhamBloom18 – we still want to see the borough in all of its blooming glory.
