Ryedale Folk Museum is gearing up for another year’s entry to Yorkshire in Bloom with Judging next Tuesday! Yorkshire in bloom is an annual award and is part of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in bloom. This is the Ryedale Folk Museum’s 8th year taking part. In our first year we won silver followed by five consecutive ‘Yorkshire Rose Gold’ awards in the visitors’ attraction category. But last year the Museum finally won Gold and best in category!
‘Its not just about the flowers and plants its about the whole museum, public awareness, conservation, recycling, growing better communities and improving our environment. The reason we win is thank to staff and volunteers working hard throughout the year to achieve a high standard within the museum’ Kevin Simms Museum Manager.
This year the museum has done some extra planting and bedding, and has run awareness events like their recent ‘Bee Aware’ all around the importance of bees.
The Museum is really pleased to take part in such a prestigious event and is continuously trying to improve, now the challenge is on to remain Best in Category, can we do it for two years running?
