Newbury In Bloom

Newbury In Bloom (1)


The ‘Newbury in Bloom 2022’ campaign is now underway, and you can start to plan your entry and register now! Check out our video with all you need to know here.

After the huge success of previous years, unfortunately we had to cancel the campaign due to the COVID-19 pandemic for 2020 and 2021. This year we are excited to reveal that Newbury in Bloom will once again take place. Closing date for initial submissions is 10 June 2022 and the judging for the competition will take place week commencing 18 July 2022.

Newbury Town Council are keen to continue engaging with the residents of Newbury, encouraging the projects that they have been working on and recognise everyone’s hard work within the ‘In Bloom’ communities.  The campaign aims to improve the appearance of our town and environment and making Newbury a greener, cleaner and more pleasant place to live together with promoting horticultural excellence.                                 

We are increasing the categories this year to 7 awards for 2022:

  • Neighbourhood - 5 + properties (including alms-houses & canal boats)
  • Community Projects - any community or Group working together.
  • Places of worship or Assembly  
  • Allotment
  • Miniature Garden - (window box, hanging basket 1mx1m max)
  • Business
  • Schools

Awards will be presented for current and ongoing projects, although these may have started in 2020 or in previous years. Projects can be of any size, small or large. We would like to thank our sponsors, The Yew Tree Garden Centre, Rivar Sand & Gravel Ltd, Sundog Hire and Greentips who are providing generous support and prizes for the competition.

The Newbury in Bloom Working Group runs the 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.

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.
