Growing civic pride in Otley

Bloom in Otley!

Formed in the year 2000 to improve the public green spaces in the town the group’s objectives have evolved over the years to involve us in the wider aspects of the town environment.  From planting flower beds to creating dry stone wall gateways to the town, and from producing a Town Enhancement Study  to our annual entry into the Yorkshire In Bloom competition our aim is to "Grow Civic Pride in Otley"

We are a group of local volunteers who care passionately about the town of Otley in West Yorkshire and its appearance. 

Main activities:

  • The Taskforce - get down and dirty with "hands-on" action.
  • Yorkshire in Bloom - preparation for annual spring & summer "Yorkshire in Bloom" competitions.
  • Consultancy - town environmental recommendations.
  • Bespoke projects - support, advice, planning, and project management.


If you'd like to get involved with any, or all, of these activities please join in. We'd love to have you on board!
