Tamworth In Bloom

The 2018 Tamworth in Bloom campaign has a very special theme. Tamworth Borough Council is celebrating three very important anniversaries this year with the theme Homecoming 2018:- 100 years since the end of WW1, 100 years since the Girl Guides were formed in Tamworth and the1100th anniversary of ‘The Lady of the Mercians’, Aethelflaed’s death in Tamworth.

This year’s Tamworth in Bloom campaign will include a number of festive and floral celebrations to mark these important anniversaries.
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 raised flower beds planted within a battlefield trench, wild flowers and a very special tribute to the end of WW1.

This year Tamworth is looking to strike gold for the ninth 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.

See our press release for particular Tamworth in Bloom events including the planting of a special flower bed near the bowling green with the Girl Guides crest, and the display of a special floral crown and the Mercia flag in the bandstand flower beds to complement the Mercian Mosaic.
