The Maryporters Group oversaw Maryport’s entry in Cumbria in Bloom 2019, working in association with the Town Council & Toni Magean of Allerdale Borough Council.
The judges visited in early July & were shown sites at Solway Court, the Senhouse Roman Museum, Maryport Marina, Ewanrigg Community Centre & the Railway Station, where the managers of those areas explained their contributions, including a Roman Flower Bed, Site of Special Scientific Interest, Animal & Insect Homes & Historic Maryport. The individual sites were supplemented by flower displays around the town, including baskets, hanging baskets, the Alauna Aurora & Ship & Lighthouse displays at Netherhall Corner. The judges were very impressed by what they were presented with & the town was awarded a Silver Gilt at the Cumbria in Bloom Awards in September, a great improvement on recent displays. Well done everyone involved!
