Whitby in Bloom

Whitby in Bloom

We are proud to be supporting such a hard-working group of volunteers in Whitby who produce the annual floral displays which enhance the overall look and feel of the town.

Who is Whitby in Bloom?

The Whitby in Bloom Group is comprised of individuals and representatives of organisations in the town who seek to work together to promote, support and develop their beautiful town.  They aim to use horticulture to enhance the environment in which we live, work and play.

What we have supported

Whitby in Bloom is a fantastic organisation that pays a lot of attention to brightening and enhancing areas of Whitby and taking pride in creating natural habitats.  We were pleased to support their enhanced planting scheme, emphasising improving the look and feel of key points, like the railway station within the town.

2020 Investment:  £3,160

2021 Investment:  £15,000

2022 Investment: £10,685

2023 Investment: £8,600

Scheme Length

The funding we provided in 2020 helped grow more plants and equipment to house them to enable more displays in Whitby.  This work started at the start of 2020 and 2021 for the planting scheme to continue and be expanded throughout more areas. We are delighted to confirm that we are supporting again in 2022 which will see a special Queen Elizabeth Garden to mark the Jubilee.

To support the project even further and help enhance visitors’ experience at the train station, we have also partnered with Esk Valley Railway and Northern.

The planting will continue across Summer and Autumn in 2023 in colours of apricot.

We will update more imagery when the planting takes place and let you know more about the ambitions of both organisations and the WhitBEE Line.
