Our In Bloom awards
We have 4 townships that all enter the North West In Bloom competition. These townships are Rochdale, Heywood, Middleton and Pennines. All our townships have won several North West In Bloom awards.
The finalists from the North West In Bloom competition get entered into Britain In Bloom awards, which is the most prestigious horticultural competition in the country.
We were entered into Britain In Bloom for the first time in 2018, where we won gold.
In 2022, we were delighted to be entered again, receiving a gold award in the Best Small City Category. Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) judges voted Rochdale as the best small city in the UK and the best in the category.
