Bloom and Grow is Oldham's entry into Britain in Bloom and North-West in Bloom.
Bloom and Grow is more than just flowers… it’s about the whole community working together to improve our towns, neighbourhoods and gardens.
The campaign aims to help us all to feel proud of our neighbourhoods and to bring communities together. It aims to educate people so they can play a vital role in keeping the borough looking beautiful, clean and attractive to residents and visitors alike.
Oldham has a strong history of success in the Britain in Bloom competitions, and in 2017 we were once again recognised for our work, winning:
- ‘Best City’ in the 2017 North West in Bloom Awards – Oldham has now won this for 8 years in a row
- ‘Best Feature in a Public Place’ in the 2017 North West in Bloom Awards
- ‘Gold’ award in the Champion of Champions category of 2017 Britain in Bloom Awards – the highest classification available
- ‘Outstanding Contribution Award’ given to Glenn Dale, Head of Environmental Services
