Mayor’s plea to green-fingered Penrith residents


[D]ear Sir,

As many of your readers will be aware, Penrith will shortly host the judging team from Britain in Bloom. This is a recognition of the wonderful work done last year, not only will our town receive county-wide attention for its floral excellence but also national attention as well.

I would personally like to thank all those who have contributed to this year’s displays and made the ‘Greening’ possible. From Penrith Community Gardeners to Penrith BID, Eden Mencap to the St. Andrew’s Churchyard Gardeners, the Lions Club and Eden District Council. There are numerous organisations to thank and undoubtedly, I will have missed someone. Suffice it to say all involved are fantastic examples of what makes Penrith such a special place.

I would also like to take this opportunity to ask a favour of the people of Penrith. Would you indulge in a little gardening yourself? I know so many of you take such pride in your gardens and it would be superfluous to ask for more but others may just have a front doorstep that might need a sweep. As every drop of water is as important as the last in forming the ocean, so every bit of effort this summer contributes to the beauty of Penrith. I hope you feel you can be part of that.


Cllr. Scott Jackson

Mayor Penrith
