RWB Community Together

Coronavirus Update: Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 virus, the Royal Horticultural Society has decided to cancel this year’s South West in Bloom competition.

Whilst we cannot participate in the competition, we will be keeping active on our facebook page with information on help in the community and ideas for things to do at home.

Please remember – stay safe, stay home and wash your hands.

Bassett in Bloom 2020 competition, which is for the townsfolk to enter their gardens for judging, has also been cancelled due to Covid-19. The organisers wish to express their regret, but felt it was the right decision under the present circumstances.

South West in Bloom

Royal Wootton Bassett Community Together is made up of volunteers from other organisations and groups around the town who team up to enter into a regional competition called South West in Bloom.

South West in Bloom is part of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom competition. Their main ethos is to bring together communities to create a sustainable environment. Visit  www.southwestinbloom.org.uk for more information.

Community Together has been entering the competition since 2015 and bought home many awards for our town and community:

2015 – GOLD Pennant Class and BEST NEWCOMER

2016 – GOLD Pennant Class

2017 – GOLD High Street Award

2018 – GOLD Pennant Class and Best Public House Display for The Angel Hotel

Last year was slightly different to previous years, we’ve moved away from the Pennant Class which was for newbies, and stepped into the main competition going against towns of similar population. Towns are judged using the same criteria as Britain in Bloom, meaning everything was harder and more intense. Our category was called the Sargent Cup and Royal Wootton Bassett was awarded a phenomenal GOLD for 2019.

The ball is already rolling for our 2020 entry and we would LOVE to have more people join us in bringing our community together to create a beautiful, sustainable town. Please get in touch with our Chairman, Linda Frost via frostlk@yahoo.co.uk
