about us

Skipton in Bloom formed as a community group in 2005 and became a Registered Charity in 2016.  The group's members represent Craven College, the Stepping Stones II Project, the two Skipton Rotary clubs, Yorkshire Housing, Skipton Gardeners Club, Skipton Town Council, Skipton BID, local residents and volunteers.  Our vision is to:

  • Make Skipton more attractive for all who visit, live and work in the town
  • Encourage people to be more actively involved in the aesthetic values of the town
  • Encourage local pride
  • Stimulate horticultural interest by working with enthusiastic individuals, schools and other groups
  • Act as an umbrella organisation for local horticultural and environmental groups
  • Enhance the reputation of Skipton as a tourist destination
  • Create a more sustainable and environmentally friendly townscape

Skipton in Bloom also run the annual Skipton Gardening Competition where residents, allotment holders and businesses compete for prizes distributed at our Awards Ceremony each September.

Skipton in Bloom hold regular meetings which are informal and friendly and open to anyone with an interest in improving the local environment.  Many supporters are happy to receive meeting notes so they can keep up to date with activities or offer advice, others like to be much more involved and are happy to get their hands dirty!  For more information on Skipton in Bloom, please email us or phone the Skipton Town Council office on 01756 700553.
