Our aim is to enhance the attractiveness of Bishop’s Waltham by providing floral displays throughout the town in the flower beds, planters and hanging baskets. Many of these are sponsored by local businesses and individuals.
We are increasing the permanent planting in some of the beds and have planted bulbs in many of the grass verges. We also plant bulbs in some of the flower beds and lift and store them when we replant with bedding plants in May.
We have introduced some wild flower areas and we will continue to increase these over the next few years.
All this work is done by a group of volunteers, our weeders and planters, and we welcome new people to join us.
We organise a variety of events to involve residents and visitors:
- Annual floral competition judged in July
- Prize giving barbeque in August
- Biennial Hidden Garden in July
- Quiz night in January
- Sizzling sausages in December
