Swanland in Bloom

Swanland in Bloom is a sub-committee of the SVA. For many years Swanland entered the Yorkshire in Bloom competition.

In 2004 as a result of its past successes Swanland entered the Britain in Bloom competition and was awarded a silver medal. The 2004 entry amounted to a huge effort for the gardening team.

The Parish Council gives an annual grant. Swanland Nurseries used to provide plants and fill Hayracks at a generous discount. SVA events help to raise funds and other finance comes from SVA members’ subscriptions.

Although Swanland retains a village atmosphere, due to its population size it has to be entered in the Small Country Town category and has also won several good placings and certificates of merit.

Swanland was not eligible to enter Britain in Bloom in 2005 because each place has to re-qualify in its regional competitions. It was also been decided not to enter Yorkshire in Bloom that year. After organising the entry to the Britain in Bloom Competition we felt we needed a rest!

We hope keep make the village as attractive in the future with the centre of effort around the pond.
