Celebrate RHS’s 60th Anniversary at Congleton Park

Congleton Park will play host to a special celebration on Sunday 7th July, from 12pm to 4pm, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Britain in Bloom competition.

This exciting event, organised by Congleton in Bloom, Congleton Lions, and Friends of Congleton Park, promises a day filled with fun, community spirit, and horticultural delight.

Cllr David Brown, Chair of Congleton in Bloom said:

“The whole community is invited to this free event, we have lots of wonderful things planned to celebrate the RHS in Bloom 60th birthday. It will be a fantastic opportunity for the town to come together and celebrate the beauty and success of Congleton’s horticultural efforts. We hope as many people as possible will join us for a memorable day of family-friendly fun and community pride.”

David continues:

“Highlights of the event will include free family activities, visitors can expect garden displays, community stalls, mini workshops, and children’s activities. Pack a picnic or purchase delicious refreshments from Stocks at The Pavilion. Don’t miss an exceptional performance by the Lions Youth Brass Band from 1pm to 3pm at the bandstand.”

The celebration comes just ahead of an important date for Congleton. On 14 August, the RHS in Bloom judges will visit Congleton as it represents the North West region in the North West in Bloom finals. Congleton is competing in the Large Town category, Large Park category, and 14 In Your Neighbourhoods.

Over the past two decades, Congleton has achieved remarkable success in regional and national RHS in Bloom competitions, earning over 20 gold medals. The park itself has been recognised with multiple awards, including the prestigious Green Flag and Heritage Flag, as well as numerous RHS in Bloom accolades for its exceptional floral displays.

The town’s impressive Victorian park, complete with children’s play area, ancient woodland paths, river walks, ornamental gardens, bowling green, just bee garden, bandstand, chatty benches, toilets, and pavilion café is just a five-minute walk from the town centre! The park is owned by Cheshire East Council and maintained by the Town Council’s Streetscape team to ensure it looks blooming marvellous all year round.

Congleton in Bloom is dedicated to enhancing the local environment through community gardening and floral displays, contributing to the beauty and well-being of the town.
