About Us


Wetherby's aspirations to become one of the best floral towns in Britain began with small beginnings in 1989 when an entry was made in the regional Yorkshire in Bloom competition. Since that tentative entry was made Wetherby has become an acknowledged champion of floral display in Yorkshire, the United Kingdom and Europe having won the best Town category of Britain in Bloom in 1998, been awarded a silver gilt in the same competition in 2002 and 2010, a coveted European Entente Florale Gold award in 1999 and a gold award in the 2005 International Communities in Bloom competition. The driving force behind this achievement has been the volunteer group known as Wetherby in Bloom.
