Schools

Workington In Bloom loves working with children; there's something about getting out in the fresh air, learning new things and helping the environment and wildlife that is so fulfilling.

 

We work with local schools to get them involved in events and projects.  If you would be interested in getting your school involved, we would love to hear from you.

Workington Nature Partnership

The Workington Nature Partnership aims to deliver effective management of Workington’s natural areas in partnership with local communities and user groups which will continually improve and enhance nature reserves, landscape character and wildlife habitats.

Workington Nature Partnership is a joint initiative between Allerdale Borough Council and Workington Town Council.

Competitions

We run a Fruit & Veg competition every year which includes a variety of different categories to enter into.

The aim of the competition is to encourage allotment holders to use their land effectively. It also encourages them to 'grow their own' which can then be used for healthy and wholesome meals at home.

 

This is a community event which brings everyone together for our annual show, where all entries will be judged, plus, a little competition never hurt anyone!

Volunteers

We are always looking for volunteers to help us with a variety of projects and we can tailor the experience to your interests.

 

We also have a Vulcan Park volunteer group who usually meet on a Sunday and carry out tasks such as planting bulbs and flowers, clearing weeds, and generally tidying up.

 

Get in touch if you would like to get involved!

Meetings

The Workington in Bloom meetings are made up of like-minded organisations and volunteers who want to make Workington a brighter and more environmentally place to be.


New members are welcome to attend with no experience necessary. At the meetings we identify potential ‘grot spots’ and unloved sites that need work, plan the floral displays, and discuss potential sources of funding.

Visit our Facebook page for our next meeting date or get in touch for a chat.
