For information on our group please contact caytoninbloom@yahoo.co.uk
 
The group was set up in March 2002 initially to remove some of the environmental / gardening responsibilities from the parish council and transfer them to local volunteers with a keen interest.
 
The response was good and the membership currently stands at sixteen. The group also have other volunteers who help with particular projects. A formal meeting is held monthly and members meet in the parish on a regular basis at other times to carry out the work of planting and maintenance.
 
Funds need to be raised, by the group, from a number of sources and the annual budget is in excess of £5000.00.
 
Responsibility for the parish entry into the Britain and Yorkshire In Bloom competitions is handled by the group as is the Best Kept Garden Competition; both previously parish council functions. Cayton residents are enthusiastic about the competitions and the group see them as a benchmark for the progress being made.
 
The Best Kept Garden Competition is judged in July in two stages, first round judging of all the gardens in the parish is by group members and a short list is prepared with final judging by two independant judges from outside the parish. Trophies are awarded for the best large, medium/small and container gardens also around seventy gold, silver or bronze certificates are presented to runners up. A vegetable plot competition is new for 2010.
 
Local businesses are keen supporters of "in bloom" initiatives and provide sponsorship, ensure attractive frontages and where appropriate provide facilities for events.
 
 
Woodland Owl
From 2002 the group have carried out a number of projects including the creation of shrub / flower beds, planted trees, added extra planters, acquired and sited a floral boat, cart and mill wheel, placed floral baskets on all the main street lamp posts, created a bird garden, created a wildflower meadow and accepted the management of a local wood for conservation.
