I am sure you agree with me that the floral displays around the town looked magnificent last year. Even planted up bags and ‘quirky’ planters appeared adding a sense of working together to improve our town and helping to make it an attractive place to live and work. I would like to thank you most sincerely if you were one of those who made a difference.
For 2017 we would like to make the town even better! There will again be the large planters, baskets and displays kindly arranged and funded by Penrith BID, but there is still ample opportunity for other displays outside premises. Even keeping the front of buildings tidy and free of weeds and rubbish is a contribution.
This year Penrith BID has been invited to enter the RHS Britain in Bloom Competition; a recognition from the Cumbria in Bloom judges that Penrith is starting to become a more attractive place to live and shop. We would welcome your support in making Penrith a top contender in this higher category for the Best Town in Britain! It has to be a joint effort and show that we can work together.
I firmly believe that together we can make a difference. Let’s go for it!
My very best wishes
David Whipp, Mayor of Penrith
