When you go about your everyday life and drive the kids to school or get on your bike to work…do you notice what’s going on around you? Do you see the thousands of Crocus popping up through grass verges and stunning Poppies on roundabouts? Whilst nature does it’s thing, a great deal of what makes our cities, towns and villages so pretty and great for wildlife is down to some incredible communities coming together to make it all happen. From Halstead to Filby and Norwich to Leighton Linslade competing in categories including best floral hotel, cemetery and different size villages and towns. It’s hard work for the dedicated entrants but exceptionally rewarding, exciting and an endless journey of learning and fun.
I am so privileged to now be a Trustee of Anglia in Bloom, working with the team of volunteers who plan, organise and judge our fabulous communities across the region. Each are winners in their own right contributing to making our spaces beautiful, providing essential help to wildlife and bringing communities together. I’m looking forward to sprucing up the Anglia in Bloom website and catching you all on social media to spread news and information.
If you are thinking of entering Anglia in Bloom this year or in the future, get in touch! The team at AIB will be happy to guide you through the process and you could just be picked to represent our region in RHS Britain in Bloom!
Good luck to everyone - let’s make 2017 a great year for Anglia in Bloom.
