Wokingham in Bloom 2020 update

In line with the RHS decision to suspend the 2020 regional campaign we have taken the hard, but sensible, decision to suspend this year’s Wokingham in Bloom activities to protect everyone’s health and wellbeing in these unprecedented times.  

This time is challenging for everyone. The health and safety of communities, volunteers and officers remain our number one priority.  With the Government advising everyone to follow strict social distancing measures, it is sadly not currently possible for our volunteers to work together in our community gardens, though we know some of you are organising rotas which prevents this but still allows the care of the projects. 

However, many of our committee members and friends are passionate gardeners, enthusiasts and organisers so we’ll be taking the opportunity over the coming months to share what we are doing as well as great tips for gardening, plants and wildlife. As many of our residents are out in their gardens, it really is a great opportunity for us all to exchange ideas, photos and inspiration digitally across the town.  

We’re looking into ways to share our triumphs, questions, advice and the natural beauty around us so stay tuned. There may also be a competition or two!!! 

So, whilst we know, like us, many of you may be disappointed and will miss some of the vibrancy and bursts of colour around the town, we will be working hard to make Wokingham a cleaner, greener and more beautiful place, and bring our amazing community spirit to you online in the difficult times ahead. 

Kind regards,
