Welcome to Malton in Bloom
A thriving community gardening campaign to make Malton look BLOOMING marvellous throughout the year!
Malton is a historic, vibrant, and pretty market town at the heart of North Yorkshire, boasting a central slightly inclining Market Place, split into two sections around the parish church, all circled by elegant shops and buildings, with large linear streets beyond - all this lends itself to an extensive array of summer planting in beds, baskets and planters.
Malton in Bloom has been established since 2017 winning SILVER GILT at Yorkshire in Bloom in its inaugral year. Polarising efforts and introducing some new ideas in 2018, it excelled as it won GOLD, Best in Category, and Best Commercial Entry Supporting the Community, a totally unexpected yet deserved, triple victory. 2019 saw even more additions including transforming the unloved Castlegate / Church Hill corner bed. 2019 was another great year for Malton in Bloom as it won GOLD and Best in Category.
In 2020 we will once again enter the Yorkshire in Bloom Awards.
