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.
