Waldridge In Bloom
Each year, Waldridge Parish invites the judges from Northumbria In Bloom to take a look at how wonderful the gardens, flower beds and our parish in full bloom looks.
Northumbria in Bloom is the voluntary regional organisation that administers the Britain in Bloom competition in Northumberland, Durham, Tyne & Wear and Teesside.
Eileen Burn, Chairmen of Northumbria In Bloom says
"Taking part in the competition is a rewarding experience, which improves the environment for local residents, encourages tourism and businesses to come to our region, and develops community spirit and a pride in the local environment.
Participation in the Northumbria in Bloom competition has improved the appearance of many places enormously, and this has been remarked upon by residents and visitors alike. Winners of the national competition have benefitted from the increase in local awareness and tourism."
