Britain in Bloom!

We’ve done it.

After all the years of blooming gold awards we’ve been entered into the National competition by South West in Bloom.

Sherborne is one of eight towns of similar size in England, Wales and Scotland who’ll be competing to win top marks from the judges. There are 78 other towns, cities and villages all around the UK who will also be competing. ¬†Judging takes place in August and we’ll know the results in October.
