"It is a splendid amount" said Richard Nunn, Chairman of Wimborne in Bloom after the event. "It was a grey morning with some very light rain at times but this did not put off nearly 100 people attending. He thanked everyone for their support in coming and all those that helped and indeed supported the event with items for both the main raffle, the Christmas cake raffle and the bring and buy and also to those who gave donations as they were unable to attend". The Mayor and Mayoress Cllr Terry and Mrs Pauline Wheeler attended with the Mayor drawing the Raffle. Richard Nunn also thanked the Mayor for nominating Wimborne in Bloom as one of the Mayors Charities.

The money raised will go towards our 'in Bloom' Campaign in 2018. Inevitably costs have risen somewhat since our inauguration 25 years ago on 27th November 1992 and to plant up the Town for both the summer and autumn together with watering throughout the summer we will need to raise some £18,000.

Richard Nunn appealed for continued support. If you feel you can help please do get in touch with me on (01202) 888793 or just come along to the Annual Meeting in the Town Hall on Monday 12th February 2018 at 7.30pm to find out what is involved. The Autumn Newsletter was published to coincide with the Coffee Morning and this gives details of our events next year. Copies are available from the Tourist Information Centre and the Library and full details can also be found on our website

Our final event of a very busy year will be a Float in the Save the Children Parade on Saturday 9th December.

The small working committee and a large number of members and supporters have managed to ensure the town has looked good for the past 25 years. Please help us to ensure it continues that way for the year ahead.
