Events

Wimborne in Bloom is a completely voluntary organisation. We need to raise in excess of £20,000 a year to fund our operation and maintain our high standards (see our finances, help by buying a Tote Bag or Calendar). The fund-raising events for the year are listed below. We always would be delighted to hear from anyone who would be willing to host an event for us.
