Whitehaven in Bloom 2006

Once more Whitehaven was blooming marvellous again as the town was festooned with flowers in its annual attempt at horticultural honours.

St. Nicholas gardens

The centre point of the town's efforts was the St. Nicholas gardens which was a riot of colour.

Ship floral display

A splendid set piece was the sailing ship at the corner of Roper Street and Irish Street. The hull of the ship was made from flowers and behind it a lighthouse and two more planters in the shape of small boats completed the scene.

Instead of a mural outside the Dunboyne Hall this year there was a series of screens depicting Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz fronted by large tubs of flowers.

Planters and baskets at Civic hall

More planters along the side of the Civic Hall transformed the plain concrete and railings into a bright and colourful scene.

Recylce floral display

The display outside the Marchon Club at the top of Coach Road went further than just decoration by advertising the Council's drive towards recycling.
