Blooming Haddington is a group of volunteers dedicated to making Haddington a bright and attractive place to live and work. Formed in 2013, the group has developed an effective partnership with East Lothian Council, businesses, community organisations and individuals who share the Blooming Haddington vision for their town. The volunteers are of various ages and abilities and are passionate about making sure that the hanging baskets, containers and green spaces they are responsible for look their best. To bring the community together in 2019, the group organised a wheelbarrow competition and is delighted and proud that this has become an annual event.
In 2019, Blooming Haddington was awarded a Gold medal and won the 'Town' category of the RHS UK Britain in Bloom finals. The group was also presented with the RHS UK Discretionary Award for Gardening in a Changing Climate. Find out more here.
