APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED FOR 2021!
The Newbury in Bloom Working Group runs an annual campaign to promote environmental improvements across the town. Our aim is to make Newbury an inviting place for people to live, work and visit.
We help to support community projects, bringing people together and encouraging them to make their pocket of the town a more attractive area with planting and floral displays.
In 2020, after the huge success of previous years, unfortunately the decision had to be taken not to run the campaign due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To this end, we are expanding five of the most appropriate awards for 2021. They are more relevant to the current situation and are more flexible in the way that the public can get involved.
The categories this year will be:
- Neighbourhood - 5 + properties (including alms-houses & canal boats)
- Community Projects - any community or Group working together.
- Places of worship or Assembly
- Miniature Garden - (window box, hanging basket 1mx1m max, window displays)
This year there are 3 ways for entrants to get involved with the campaign. You can submit a video to us via a YouTube link, send a photographic portfolio, or the judges can visit you in person, if regulations permit.
Here we are showcasing some of the best efforts from within our town. From Community Projects, Places of Worship, Schools, Businesses, Allotment plots and Alms houses
Britain in Bloom
Newbury is now starting to see the benefits from these campaigns and the improvements to the town’s appearance. The campaign awards prizes for the best Community Project, Place of Worship, School, Business, Allotment plot and Almshouses with new categories planned. Over recent years we have produced some fantastic results.
Britain in Bloom will incorporate the highlights of Newbury in Bloom and will be used to continue to improve the appearance and the environment of the Town.
