Selby in Bloom - 2018

Selby Town Council, as part of its commitment to making Selby a greener and more pleasant place to live and work, will be erecting 40 hanging baskets and numerous planters in the Town at the beginning of June.

The Bloom Committee would like to thank all the Selby businesses who already support our cause to enhance the Town and improve the environment. The continued commitment by Selby businesses is very much appreciated and it is hoped that business that are unable to provide a floral display on their own premises could consider making a donation towards the baskets and tubs sited in the Town.

In connection with Selby in Bloom, Annual Competitions are arranged. These competitions are in their ninth year and it is hoped that the interest in these will continue to grow.

(a)  Primary School Painting Competition – Sponsored by The Giant Bellflower ( J D Wetherspoons)

The Competition is split into two categories being Primary Pupils (upto 7yrs) and Junior Pupils (8yrs to 11yrs). Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners of each category.
