Each year, the Windermere Town Council enters the "Cumbria In Bloom Competition" which embraces the overall picture of the Parish including businesses, private dwellings, public spaces and community amenities.  For 2011 this has been re-branded "Cumbria In Bloom Pride in Your Community."

The competition also looks at community projects which benefit and enhance the area overall whether it is maintained by the District or Town Council, a private individual or the public at large; they aim for us to keep our areas clean, tidy and attractive, thereby making for a better environment in which to live and work and enter the "Windermere In Bloom" competition.

There is also the added bonus of making the area attractive to visitors in the hope that they and their friends will return in the future.

The Windermere Town Council have decided not to enter the 2015 Cumbria in Bloom Pride in Your Community campaign.

The categories for judging are:

Section A - Horticultural Achievement.

Section B - Environmental Responsibility.

Section C - Community Participation.

A number of local schools have entered the "Schools Gardening" competition and throughout the year, have been undertaking projects that fall under one or more of the above categories.  The schools in question are:

School Award
Goodly Dale Primary


St. Mary's Church of England Nursery & Infants School


Windermere Church of England Primary/Junior School Developing.
