Helmsley in Bloom

Front of Carters Country Ways   

  • Helmsley has won Gold medals in the Large Village category of Yorkshire in Bloom for the last three years.
  • This is a testament to the hard work and many hours given by our band of volunteers working in partnership with other organisations and businesses in the town.
  • The Yorkshire in Bloom Judges make twice yearly visits to Helmsley in spring and summer to carry out their assessments and  look at how we tackle a range of topics including Horticultural Excellence, Environmental Responsibility and how the entire community works together.
  • Can you help Helmsley in Bloom?
  • If you are able to give as little as an hour a week the volunteers would love to hear from you. You don’t have to have green fingers, just bags of enthusiasm and a sense of humour! If you have a particular talent, the Helmsley in Bloom Group would welcome your help. Please call David Westhead, our chairman, for an informal chat.

All of our achievements to date could not have been done without the support of the growing band of supporters and ‘hands on’ volunteers, local businesses, Ryedale District Council, North Yorkshire County Council, the Ryedale Housing Association and last but by no means least, the enthusiastic encouragement of our Town Council.
