Whickham & District in Bloom Committee
The aim of the committee which was formed in 1976 is to promote, advance and encourage all aspects of horticulture within Whickham, Swalwell, Dunston, Lobley Hill & Sunniside areas. It supports Gateshead Council in their efforts to promote Britain in Bloom and to improve the environment generally in and around the Whickham area. We are affiliated to the Royal Horticultural Society and are actively involved in Northumbria in Bloom and Britain in Bloom competitions.
We stage a successful Spring Bulb Show and an Autumn Show every year as well as staging a garden competition for the residents and businesses in Whickham. We also actively promote the work of the committee by providing a horticultural display at the Saltwell Park Show every April. Committee meetings take place in Church Chare, Whickham on the last Thursday of each month.
