Newbury in Bloom
Newbury in Bloom is back!

Newbury Town Council is re-launching its ‘Newbury in Bloom” campaign to make the town an even better place to live, visit and work.  Newbury in Bloom will include a competition for the following categories for 2016:

  • Primary School Garden
  • Place of Worship Garden
  • Public House/Restaurant
  • Small Business
  • Allotment

The Town Council can provide beautiful red, white and blue hanging baskets for businesses for the summer at £60 each, which includes watering throughout the season. If you already have hanging basket brackets you should have already received an order form. If you are interested in having a new bracket installed please contact the Community Services team on 01635 35486.

Newbury in Bloom leaflets/entry forms are available from the Town Hall in the Market Place or they can be downloaded from the Newbury Town Council website www.newbury.gov.uk

Of course, encouraging better practice in our own competition can only help Newbury’s case when Newbury enters the Royal Horticultural Society’s national “Britain in Bloom” competition in future years!

Closing date for entries is 30 June 2016.

For further information, entry forms and details of sponsorship opportunities, contact Joyce Lewis at Newbury Town Council on 01635 35486, email joyce.lewis@newbury.gov.uk  or see our website www.newbury.gov.uk.
