Tewkesbury in Bloom

Each year we enter the Heart of England in Bloom regional Britain in Bloom competition to raise the profile of the town. 

The group formed in 1990 when the competition was run by Tidy Britain which was a Government run initiative. 

We have won many awards over the years including eight Gold medals between 2010 and 2017. 

Other highlights include: 

  • Winning the Best in Category (Town division) in 2014 &  2017  
  • In 2015 competing at National Level in Britain in Bloom
  • Being filmed in 2017 for a BBC2 documentary about the Britain in Bloom competition
