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.

We were delighted that our judges were able to get back out and about to judge this year’s entries in Corsham in Bloom after last year’s much smaller competition, which was judged via photographs. As always, Corsham did itself proud and the judges had a very tough job choosing the overall winners, but they were:

Best Place of Worship: St John’s, Gastard

Best Sports Club: Corsham Cricket Club

Best Commercial Premises: AJB Funerals

Best Public Building or Structure: Mayo Memorial

Best Public House, Social Club or Eating Place: The Corsham Club

Congratulations to everyone who took part and came along to the presentation evening.
