About Sherborne in Bloom


Sherborne in Bloom

In 2013 Sherborne in Bloom took a new direction – and this became the start of a new impetus in our town’s ‘blooming’ activities.

Previously, Sherborne in Bloom was run and financed by Sherborne Town Council, but changing times dictated that this was no longer their preferred option. In response, a group of supporters and enthusiasts formed themselves into an independent organisation called ‘Sherborne in Bloom Team’ and their remit is to run the project on a voluntary basis.

Anyone can become a ‘friend’ of Sherborne in Bloom. We rely on a body of popular support to keep the project going and welcome help and encouragement from both residents and businesses in the town.

The aims of the new group are:

  • To enhance the town with planting schemes that will improve the environment for the benefit of both visitors and residents alike
  • To encourage the involvement of all age-groups, throughout the year, in a range of voluntary activities in support of our project
  • To continue our involvement in the prestigious ‘South West in Bloom’ competition, where our past performance has resulted in a string of Gold Awards and other trophies

This website will provide both a background to the project and also a record of what we’re up to.
