2016 Shadwell withdrew from Yorkshire in Bloom. See Yorkshire in Bloom 2016.

We entered the Royal Horticultural Society It's Your Neighbourhood category thus retaining LCC help with unfettered access to the Seacroft Waste Disposal site for our green waste, and extra street cleaning and verge mowing near Judging Day. We were judged to be Level 5 Outstanding and received glowing mentor's comments and a certificate which will be displayed in the Shadwell Library when it reopens in October.
