During the first two weeks of July 2019, the Belper in Bloom group will lead RHS East Midlands in Bloom judges on a tour of the area as the Town bids to win Gold for the tenth successive year.
Now in its 55th year, Britain in Bloom has evolved into a UK wide campaign that brings communities together while promoting the environmental, health and wellbeing benefits of gardening by planting thousands of bedding plants in the parks and planters in and around the town centre and Milford and putting up hundreds of hanging baskets.
This will be the culmination of the efforts of a huge number of volunteers from the Belper Gardening Group, Transition Belper, the Open Gardens team, Belper Goes Green, Blooming Milford, Scouts and Guides, Belper School and many others, together with the staff at Belper Town Council and Amber Valley Borough Council.
This year’s theme celebrates the town’s twinning with Pawtucket, America, which this year celebrates its twenty fifth anniversary.
