Tamworth in Bloom

Tamworth in Bloom 2022 LogoThe Tamworth in Bloom campaign is finally back after two years of restrictions due to the pandemic, revealing a very special theme and message as the borough gets involved with making Tamworth great.

Tamworth Borough Council is celebrating this year’s Tamworth in Bloom campaign with the theme of ‘Get Blooming Active Tamworth - and celebrate!’ with the focus on the long-term plan to improve areas in and around the borough and setting up community involvement to maintain planting beds and floral areas.

The theme will also celebrate two exciting events happening this summer – The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the Commonwealth Games 2022.

Street Scene teams from Tamworth Borough Council will be out in force in the coming months to prepare the area for its summer floral display. At the same time, communities, groups, such as the volunteers who take care of our local nature reserves, businesses and individuals are getting involved with some exciting new projects this year.

This year’s work will also continue on the exciting project that was started just before 2020 lockdown, involving new planting and focus on developing a brighter, more beautiful space in areas that are not usually included in the Tamworth in Bloom judging route.

‘Get Blooming Active’ will reflect a new theme for Tamworth in Bloom involving sports and games; community and environment groups; recycling projects; forest school projects; Dementia Friendly groups and a world record tap dancing initiative; highlighting some of these in the flowers and events that are planned.  

Get Blooming Active is also about joining the community and local groups together to support new planting or projects near to residential areas. If you would like to get involved in improving and maintaining your area, then get in touch now with: TARartsdevelopment@tamworth.gov.uk .

Businesses are invited to join in by sponsoring a display; banners, planters, troughs and flowerbeds are all available for branding with the names of supporting companies.

Cllr Robert Pritchard, Deputy Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, said: “There are many things to be proud of in Tamworth and I’m delighted that after two years of pandemic restrictions and lockdowns, we are able to plan a range of events and projects to celebrate Tamworth within our bloom programme.

“Tamworth in Bloom is about working with and celebrating the groups, organisations and individuals in the borough, and doing our bit to make Tamworth a place that is welcoming with a strong community spirit.

“This year we not only have two major events to celebrate with the Queen’s Jubilee and the Commonwealth Games, but we are also aiming to continue with our new long-term plan to improve and renovate more of our residential planting areas.

“We hope that even more people will get involved and active in helping to make Tamworth bloom again this year.”
