Newcastle in Bloom

People at Newcastle in Bloom

Newcastle first entered Bloom as a small city in 1991. This year we will have been involved with the campaign for 32 years, an achievement we are extremely proud of!  

2023 marks a huge milestone in the borough's history as we celebrate the 850th anniversary of Newcastle-under-Lyme gaining the Royal Charter.  This will be the main theme of our campaign as well as looking to the future of Bloom to see what improvements we can all make to our environment.

This summer Newcastle won it's 21st consecutive Gold award and were 'Overall Winners' in the Heart of England Regional small city category. We also had the great honour of being nominated for the RHS National UK Finals and are very proud to announce that we received a Gold award and were crowned 'Overall Winners' out of 44 finalists from across the whole of the UK.
