Contrary to popular belief, Britain in Bloom is not just about seasonal flower displays!

This long-standing campaign encourages communities to improve their local areas by making them safer, cleaner and greener resulting in increased civic pride and a stronger local identity.

The campaign addresses sustainability, local environmental quality and public awareness.  It encourages recycling, the establishment of conservation areas and the tackling of litter, graffiti, vandalism and anti-social behaviour.

Within Rother, there are 3 active ‘In Bloom’ groups; Bexhill-in-Bloom, Rye-in-Bloom and Beautiful Battle. These groups run local competitions for residents, businesses and schools in their areas. They do much to enhance the outdoor environment of our towns and achieve this through the commitment of a small number of volunteers.

Both Battle and Bexhill regularly enter the regional In Bloom competition and have won a number of awards over the years.  For further information, please contact Rebecca Owen, Parks Development Officer on 01424 787522 or rebecca.owen@rother.gov.uk.
