Kington in Bloom is a Town Council initiative made up mainly of Councillors and other willing volunteers. The group has two purposes:
- The Kington in Bloom Working Group. This group, closely linked to Operation Kington, looks after the tubs and hanging baskets that are displayed in various locations in the shopping area of the town. In 2015, the group expanded its work to include other locations at the further reaches of Kington including new flower tubs around town and a superb flower display on the north roundabout. If you would like to join in, take a look at our Operation Kington page
- The Kington in Bloom Competition. This is an annual event organised by the Town Council, as part of a scheme to encourage more planting and floral displays to show our beautiful town at its best.
The Council expresses grateful thanks to all who take part and to Arrow Mill Garden Centre for hosting the award ceremony and providing the ‘Turner Prize’ for the 'Judge's Favourite' entry.
