Yorkshire in Bloom Winner 2016, Rose Garden

Weir Holiday Park at Stamford Bridge has received a Gold award from Yorkshire in Bloom at a prestigious ceremony held at York Racecourse.


Weir Holiday Park was in the Caravan, Camping & Chalet Parks category and this is the first time they have won a Gold award. They were also named best in category.


The ceremony was attended by Weir Holiday Park’s Gardener, Geoff Tiffany, and his wife, Anne. They collected the award yesterday on behalf of all the team at the Park who help to make the grounds presentable.


The judges’ report commented on the creation of a bedding theatre as a particular stand out feature of the planting scheme. They also remarked on the work done to encourage otters, birds and bees with reference to the bee friendly border and bee and bug hotels.


Weir Holiday Park is situated on the banks of the River Derwent in Stamford Bridge and is owned by the Hind family. The family and team has worked for a number of years to enhance the natural surroundings and encourage wildlife into the park. The investment into the aesthetics of the park is for more than just the holidaymakers and the flower beds and displays contribute to the development of this nature-loving landscape. The holidaymakers at the park have also embraced the entry to Yorkshire in Bloom by planting around their holiday homes. The Park has been awarded Gold in the David Bellamy Scheme for a number of years.


David and Christine Hind, owners of the park commented: “This award really is testament to Geoff and the team, and all the hard work that they put in to the presentation of the park. This year has been particularly hard work following the floods on Boxing Day that wiped out some of the flower beds. Our clients often remark on the gardens and we are pleased that Geoff’s work has been recognised by Yorkshire in Bloom.”
