The Wimborne in Bloom Annual Spring Coffee Morning was held at the home of Anthony and Christine Oliver on Saturday (12th May). It was a bright morning albeit slightly on the cool side. Over 80 people attended and £517.43 was raised towards this years 'In Bloom' Campaign.

The Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayoress Cllrs Robin and Mrs Sue Cook and the Mayor Elect Cllr Mrs Kelly Webb attended with the Deputy Mayor drawing the raffle as his last engagement of the year.

This year the Town is entered in not only the Regional South and South East in Bloom Competition in the Town Category but is also a finalist in the Britain in Bloom Competition. Judging takes place for the Regional Competition on Thursday 19th July with the Britain in Bloom Judging date still to be confirmed but likely to be Monday 30th July.

The local Wimborne in Bloom Competition will take place during the week commencing Monday 16th July. Competition entry forms will be available from early June.

The next Wimborne in Bloom event is the Open Gardens Day which takes place on Midsummers Day, Sunday 24th June when 18 gardens in and around the Town will be open. Leaflets for this event are already in various venues around Town including the Tourist Information Centre.

We have a busy period ahead of us with the summer planting taking place at the end of May and the hanging baskets going up in early June. We hope that we can count once again on everyone's support to ensure that the Town is looking its very best throughout the summer with an absence of litter, weeds and graffiti. Help is always needed so do please contact the Chairman, Richard Nunn on 01202 888793 if you can assist in any way.
