2020 Highlights

Highlights:

Recently ...

2020: COVID-19 In view of the restrictions imposed in response to the global pandemic the Wimborne in Bloom committee have made the decision to cancel this year's Open Gardens event, Local Competition and our entry into the South and South-East in Bloom competition. The Spring Coffee Morning will now be held as a virtual event. As this will have a significant impact on the funds we will be able to raise this year it has been decided that the summer floral display will be restricted to a small number of towers and planters in the centre of the town and there will be no hanging baskets.

Virtual Coffee Morning

2020: May - Spring Coffee Morning - socially distanced! On Saturday 16th May Anthony and Christine Oliver would in normal times be hosting the Wimborne in Bloom Annual Spring Coffee Morning. With the current coronavirus pandemic restrictions this event sadly cannot take place. So why not join us by drinking a coffee and enjoying a cake wherever you are and think about all those floral displays which would normally be adorning our lovely town during the summer months.
