Garforth in Bloom was established in 2008 by a group of local residents with a common interest and desire to improve the look of our town for the benefit of all who live or visit. Since then the group has gone from strength to strength.
We have created many flower beds, collected litter and tidied untidy or overgrown areas. One such area we continue to work on is the land between The Miners & Gascoigne pubs.
Our number of volunteers continue to grow and we are delighted we have members in their teens to their eighties! Some members only look after a barrel or bed near their home, others are more active. We welcome anyone no matter how much or little time you can spare. As our volunteers increase so do the number of flower beds we can create and care for.
We raise funds ourselves through sponsorship, grant applications and fund raising events. Please support our events.
We are keen to involve the whole community and are delighted the Brownies have planted and take care of the bed on Ninelands Lane. Local schools have designed posters for our entry into Yorkshire in Bloom.
Every Autumn we ask everyone to help us plant hundreds of bulbs around Garforth, watch out on our website or for posters advertising this event.
We have also established an annual “Best Kept Pub & Club Competition” for Garforth.
Meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of the month at the Gaping Goose Pub at 7:30pm.
Working Mornings are held on the second and fourth Sundays each month.
Meet at The Diamond Jubilee Garden, Aberford Road at 9.30am
