Welcome to Hutton Cranswick in Bloom. The two settlements of Huttone (village on the end of a hill) and Cranuc Wic (Old English for a crane inhabited homestead) are mentioned in the Domesday Book. Although the two areas like to retain some individual identity, they form one Parish. With a population of around 1783, Hutton Cranswick is classed as a Large Village in the Yorkshire in Bloom and Britain in Bloom campaigns.
Hutton Cranswick in Bloom was formed in 1995 to enable the village to compete in the annual Yorkshire in Bloom Campaign. It is a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers. The group aims to:
raise public awareness and promote community vision and activity
encourage and expand involvement when and where possible.
As the In Bloom Campaign has developed, Hutton Cranswick in Bloom has embraced the challenge to address the three Core Pillars of Horticultural Achievement; Environmental Responsibility; and Community Involvement.
