For the third year running, Otley has been given a Gold award by Yorkshire in Bloom, and Category winner for being the best small town in the competition this year.
Our Competition Coordinator David Bellerby said,
“We are proud and thrilled that our lovely town of Otley has been awarded Gold and Category Winner by Yorkshire in Bloom for the third consecutive year. This is a great achievement for the town. It is a tribute to all the hard work by Otley in Bloom members, individuals, organisations and businesses who have contributed to the colourful displays which have enhanced the town and helped to make Otley an attractive place in which to live, work and visit. Thanks and congratulations to everyone for a great team effort in growing civic pride.”
Jason Knowles of Otley Town council said,
“Otley can certainly be proud of its floral displays and embracing the community spirit that is so important to the success of the ongoing campaign. With a dedicated chairman who has a passion for Otley and the Bloom campaign and a Leeds City Council parks department with years of experience in delivering high-quality horticultural displays, Otley is certainly now making its mark at the In Bloom competitions. This is a fantastic and well deserved result for Otley’s In Bloom team, participating businesses, schools, community groups, Town Council, Otley BID and Leeds City Council Parks department and the many volunteers who have worked so hard not only this year but every year.”
