Northumbria in Bloom began in 1964 as one of the founder regions of the national Britain in Bloom competition. The Northumbria region is the area from Berwick in the north to Cleveland in the south and Greenhead in the west.
The purpose of the competition was, and still is, to bring cheer to the country through community gardening.
The judges, all volunteers, come from a variety of horticultural backgrounds. Northumbria in Bloom is a registered charity, administered by a board of trustees.
We hope you enjoy your tour of our website, and that your community will join in the popular Bloom competition and campaigns.
Eileen Burn, Chairman, Northumbria in Bloom.
