Ulverston Business Improvement District has been chosen to represent Cumbria on a national level following their work in the community.

They will be taking part in the finals of the 2024 RHS Britain in Bloom ceremony, which is celebrating its 60th year.

The group have been recognised for their efforts in making the town a more vibrant place, spearheading work to introduce flora into the area and maintaining local flowerbeds.

The town council said: "We are very grateful to Ulverston BID for working so hard to keep our town looking beautiful - we look forward to this year's stunning displays."

Back in October, the group also saw success at the Cumbria in Bloom awards, winning Gold and Silver Gilt for Biodiversity.

Ulverston BID will now be hoping to help Cumbria earn national glory after Newcastle-under Lyme triumphed last year for having the best displays in the country.
