West Leeds goes for gold in ‘in Bloom’ contest


West Leeds businesses, pubs, community groups, churches and schools have been recognised for their green fingered work as part of the city’s latest ‘in bloom’ honours.

170 entries were submitted in 10 categories of the Leeds in Bloom awards, which celebrate the groups, organisations and businesses who keep their premises and surroundings looking fantastic.

As part of the awards, groups were recognised with a range of spring and summer in-bloom medals ranging from gold, silver, bronze and highly commended.

Pudsey Lowtown Primary School netted a Gold award for their efforts in the summer competition, while the Corn Mill Lodge Hotel, at Pudsey Road, Bramley, got a summer silver.

The Crossed Shuttle in Pudsey received a Gold Award, Brookleigh in Calverley struck gold, as did Simon Marks Court care home in Wortley. Calverley fared well with its churches, with Calverley Methodist Church and St Wilfrid’s Church both gaining gold in the summer judging.

Cllr Jack Dunn, the council’s lead member for parks, said:

“The ‘in bloom’ network in Leeds continues to move from strength to strength, and I look forward to seeing more people and groups and organisations getting involved and taking part in the future.”

A full list of winners is available here.

Be good to see a few more West Leeds entries next year? This part of the city does seem a little under-represented.
