Tamworth In Bloom

bloom logoThe 2017 Tamworth in Bloom campaign has been launched, revealing a very special theme for this year.

Tamworth Borough Council has teamed up with the Mercian Regiment to celebrate its 10th anniversary, marking a decade since the regiment was first formed in Tamworth Castle Grounds by its Colonel-in-Chief The Prince of Wales.

The theme ‘Mercian 10 – the Heart of England’s Infantry’ will be at the centre of this year’s Tamworth in Bloom campaign and will include a number of festive and floral celebrations to mark the anniversary.

In keeping with Tamworth in Bloom tradition, the Moor Street traffic island at the end of Lichfield Street will be given a new design to reflect the new theme with one of the raised beds being planted in the shape of the Mercian logo.

This year Tamworth is looking to strike gold for the eighth year in a row in the Heart of England in Bloom competition so the pressure is on to maintain the high standard of previous years.

Street Scene teams from Tamworth Borough Council will be out in force in the coming weeks to prepare the area for its summer floral display. Communities, groups, businesses and individuals are being encouraged to get involved to help make the town shine, even if that’s just by putting up a hanging basket.
