The ‘Newbury in Bloom 2023’ campaign is well underway, with only two weeks left to make an entry to the competition.

The competition aims to improve the appearance of the town and environment, making Newbury a greener, cleaner and more pleasant place to live together with promoting horticultural excellence.

The closing date for entries is 26 May 2023 and the judging for the competition will take place week commencing 19 June 2023.

Newbury Town Council are keen to continue engaging with the residents of Newbury, encouraging the projects that they have been working on and recognise everyone’s hard work within the ‘In Bloom’ communities.  

This year’s categories 2023 are:

  • Neighbourhood - 5 + properties (including almshouses & canal boats)
  • Community Projects - any community or Group working together.
  • Places of Worship or Assembly  
  • Allotment
  • Miniature Garden - (window box, hanging basket 1mx1m max)
  • Business
  • Schools

Awards will be presented for current and ongoing projects and can be of any size, small or large.  

This is a great opportunity for our green fingered residents to show off their skills, whilst making Newbury a beautiful place to work and live.

We are looking forward to viewing the entries and would like to thank our sponsors, The Yew Tree Garden Centre, Rivar Sand & Gravel Ltd, Sundog Hire and Greentips who are providing generous support and prizes for the competition.
