Otley in Bloom

In our original 2014/19 Business Plan we committed to improving the overall appearance of the town. This led to an ongoing collaboration with Otley in Bloom who have not only installed an array of colourful seasonal planting throughout the town over the years, but also regularly maintain and water them.
Otley in Bloom have also spearheaded the initiative which has seen Otley be awarded 2 prestigious awards by Britain in Bloom.
These awards are an administrative headache, so in 2020 we agreed to take on the paperwork side of the Award submissions, and leave Otley in Bloom to do what they do best in continuing to keep our town looking inviting with seasonal planting.
Here’s some of our projects/achievements:
- Britain in Bloom Awards (admin funding):
- 2017 Silver Gilt Award
- 2019 Silver Gilt Award
- Circulation of Award Certificates to all local businesses who contributed to our success
- Annual seasonal planting, watering and maintenance through the town.
Otley Bus Station
As part of our ongoing relationship with Tatton Estates, the owners of Orchard Gate Shopping Centre, we are continuing to part-fund the beautiful floral wall decoration along the side of the Bus Station as a way of giving our visitors a warm welcome to the town. The display is maintained by our friends at Otley in Bloom.
