Britain In Bloom
In 2022 we’re going for gold!
We first entered the Britain in Bloom competition in 2018, winning a silver medal, which was great. In 2019 we won a silver gilt medal in the small city category, which was even better. In 2022 we’re going for gold!
Macclesfield Town Council organises the floral displays in the town, with particular focus on the gateway highways to the town centre and the town centre itself (these are the busiest areas). We have over 100 lamp post-mounted baskets, around 24 3-tier planters, a dozen or so large square planters and around 75 barrier planters. As well as this, there are the roundabouts and some small planting beds around the town.
Over the past couple of years, we have been trying to engage businesses more and encourage them to put out their own displays, and so far we have traders on Chestergate and Church Street making great displays. As well as this, some residents have got together to improve their streets, like Water Street (just near Churchill Way car park).
Everyone can be part of Macc in Bloom, whether it’s putting up a hanging basket, a window box, adding some planting to your front yard or event becoming a Macc in Bloom volunteer.
Volunteering for Macc in Bloom can take any shape or form you want, from being a practical helper with planting, weeding and tidying, taking on a small public rea near you, helping to prep for the Britain in Bloom judges or event helping with organisation of all the various Macc in Bloom projects. However you want to help, you can make a difference to the Macc in Bloom project and the town. Get in touch with us (email@example.com) if you would like to be involved in any way.
