Corsham in Bloom
Corsham in Bloom has been a part of the fabric of the town for well over 30 years, with competitions established to judge everything from Best Allotment to Best Sports Club. Initially set up by volunteers, the Town Council became more involved in the early 2010s. There has been wider success too, during the last decade, when the town competed in Britain in Bloom’s regional South West in Bloom competition, winning Gold a number of times.
Our in-town competitions are very popular, with our expert, independent judges visiting in July to visit all the sites involved. Equally popular is the Corsham in Bloom Presentation Night, which normally takes place in October, when certificates and trophies are handed out to the winners.
