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
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 we have committed again for 2021 for the planting scheme to continue and be expanded throughout more areas.
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.
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.
