For the Stony Stratford in Bloom volunteers this competition works
hand-in-hand with their passion for making the area even more
beautiful; greening the streets and estates with colourful flowers and herbs. It’s all about the community and last year it paid off with a gold medal.
Wolverton and Greenleys in Bloom volunteers and residents transform the parish area, making it look blooming marvellous in time for the judges’ visit in the summer! They too do everything they can to involve the local community. Last year their efforts were also rewarded with a Gold Award.
Can you help them to celebrate with your art?
