Barrow in Bloom

 

Barrow in Bloom was originally started in early 2019 for new voluntary groups in the village to work together to compete in East Midlands in Bloom. Our aim is to work alongside some of the established groups to promote the RHS Britain in Bloom’s three core pillars of :Horticultural Achievement, Environmental Responsibility, and Community Participation.

Updates

General

Becoming at Constituted Group:

With more volunteers coming forward with their support and enthusiasm in November 2020 we have decided to become a 'constituted' group which will allow us to begin applying for funding to support our existing voluntary groups and to undertake more projects around the village.

These projects will hopefully benefit the village for years to come and can also form part of our entry into the annual East Midlands in Bloom Competition.

Partner Group with Canal & River Trust:

We formed a Partner Group with the Canal & River Trust in September 2020, and we will continue to form other partnerships with organisations such Charnwood Borough Council and Leicestershire County Council, as well as working with local groups and businesses.

Funding Updates:

Dec 2020

April 2020
