Shrewsbury: A Town Of Flowers
Shrewsbury in Bloom is a non-profit organisation which brings together interested groups and individuals to discuss and implement a programme for Shrewsbury's floral enhancement, environmental improvements and community projects.
It is the driving force behind Shrewsbury's annual entry into the Heart of England in Bloom competition in which the town has repeatedly won Gold for its floral excellence.
The committee is made up of residents and representatives from local businesses, organisations, Shrewsbury Town Council and Shropshire Council. It is headed by Councillor Jackie Brennand (pictured right), Chairman of Shrewsbury in Bloom.
Officer support is provided by Shrewsbury Town Council in the form of administrative duties. The council's ground maintenance team also carry out horticultural work on behalf of the committee.
Shrewsbury in Bloom generates its income from actively marketing and promoting floral sponsorship around the town.
Shrewsbury is through to the finals of Britain in Bloom and the theme for this year is "Incredible Edibles." We will be growing vegetables, herbs and edible plants around our town, as well as our usual floral displays.
We want as many people as possible to get involved in our Incredible Edible Summer - watch this space for upcoming activities!
