Redcliffe Homes supports Sodbury in Bloom

Redcliffe Homes are again this year supporting ‘Sodbury in Bloom’, by displaying planters outside our office premises, supplied by T W Landscapes.  The colours this year are red with a splash of white and black.

RHS Britain in Bloom is the UK’s largest community gardening campaign, involving hundreds of thousands of people.

As part of RHS Britain in Bloom – and its sister campaign, RHS It’s Your Neighbourhood – volunteers in cities, towns, villages, urban communities and neighbourhoods work together to improve their local environment, using gardening as a tool.

The Sodbury In Bloom committee co-ordinates Chipping Sodbury's participation in Britain in Bloom.

Points are awarded for:

Horticultural achievement

Environmental responsibility

Community Participation

The long-term benefit of the Project will be to make a lasting improvement to the community for everyone to enjoy, young and old, residents and visitors as well as for future generations.

Last year Sodbury in Bloom not only won a gold award in the South West in Bloom competition but also the Ayre Cup for the best entry in our class. The judges were very impressed by all the hanging baskets and planters which really gave the town centre the ‘wow’ factor.

Even more businesses and residents had hanging baskets outside their premises in 2017 than in 2016. This year we are in the Champion of Champion class, competing against the other cup winners hopefully gaining another gold award!
