Corsham in Bloom

It's Corsham in Bloom time! We are very hopeful that judging can take place with actual visits this year (under Covid secure conditions) so we are open for entries for the Best Garden competition. We've decided to carry on with last year's new categories too so are also looking for the Best Planter or Window Box, the Best Hanging Basket and the Best Wildlife Garden/Environmental Project. Just fill in the entry form and return it to the Town Hall and we will be in touch when the dates for judging are finalised. Alternatively, we can post a form to you if you call us on 01249 702130.

Best Allotment is back too, alongside all the in-town categories from Best Public Building to Best Sports Club. Entry forms are not required for these as everyone is automatically entered.

The closing date is 30 June, with judging due to take place in mid-July.

Town Hall

We are available and working at the Town Hall so, if you need to get in touch, call 01249 702130, email or you can drop any correspondence in via the letterbox on the non-pub side of the Town Hall. If you cannot use these preferred means of contacting us then we are currently open from 10am-12pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays ONLY, but hope this will change over the coming months as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

Two Hours FREE Parking

The Town Council is funding the TWO HOURS FREE parking scheme, which will run until at least March 2022, to help our local businesses. You do still need to get a ticket, though.
