Welcome to East Grinstead in Bloom

Welcome to East Grinstead in Bloom which is a community initiative in East Grinstead which promotes environmental responsibility and beautification of local areas. Our web site aims to inform on the activities and projects we undertake in the town and how you can help us in our annual quest in the South and South East in Bloom competition.

East Grinstead in Bloom is a group of local residents whose aims are to improve the local environment for the benefit of all. It is aligned with South & South East in Bloom, which in turn reflects the aims of Britain in Bloom, a long-standing environmental enterprise.

Britain in Bloom is the largest horticultural campaign in Europe and each year involves hundreds of enthusiastic communities across the UK, from the smallest village to the largest city.

Lasting improvements to their local environments through horticultural good practice, environmental friendliness, community involvement and sustainability are the aims.

This campaign encompasses floral displays, permanent landscaping, biodiversity, street and neighbourhood cleanliness, recycling promotion and encouraging all forms of community participation.

We are always looking for new members to join us on projects, even if you only have a couple of hours a month to spare, every pair of hands make a difference.
