Village & Community
Each year the Cartmel In Bloom Group holds some events which aim to bring the community together or raise funds for their activities or a combination of both. Some events are held regularly and organised by the Group themselves while others take place periodically instigated by members of the community who wish to participate, support and fundraise for the activities of the group.
To see what is coming up, check the forthcoming events section in the Home Page of this site or visit the Cartmel In Bloom Facebook Page.
