London in Bloom 2022 Take Pride in Paddington

After two years of desktop judging, the judges are back in person and the pressure is mounting to show Paddington at its best for the 2022 competition on July 9th.

In preparation we are calling on the community to take part in helping the BID win Gold once again and inviting business owners and residents to join our ‘Take Pride in Paddington Day’ on Tuesday 5 July.

On the day the BID will be supported by Westminster City Council and other key services to spot clean and remove graffiti. The BID team will be combing the BID streets, picking up litter, tidying up planting and encouraging businesses to take pride in their shop fronts and we would love for you to join us.

Here are some of the things you could do on the day:

  • Tidy your shop or door frontages
  • Keep your flowers deadheaded and tidy.
  • Make sure there are no visible weeds on the plants and if possible the paving around your property.
  • If you are a business on Praed Street and Sussex Gardens please don’t put out any rubbish bags until after 6pm.

Taking part in the competition not only brings together the community, but it also shines a light on Paddington as an area that takes pride in its appearance, attracting attention for all the right reasons. Cleaner and greener streets encourage safer environments and a reduction in antisocial behaviour.

If your company would like to join the PaddingtonNow team on Take Pride in Paddington Day to help litter pick and tidy please email askus@paddingtonow.co.uk

Help us to help you maintain Paddington’s gold standard.
