About Sherborne in Bloom
Sherborne in Bloom
In 2013 Sherborne in Bloom took a new direction – and we have high hopes that this will be the start of a new impetus in our town’s ‘blooming’ activities!
Previously, Sherborne in Bloom was run and financed by Sherborne Town Council, but changing times have dictated that this is no longer their preferred option. In response, a group of supporters and enthusiasts formed themselves into an independent organisation called ‘Sherborne in Bloom Team’ and their remit is to run the project on a voluntary basis.
Anyone can become a ‘friend’ of Sherborne in Bloom. We rely on a body of popular support to keep the project going and welcome help and encouragement from both residents and businesses in the town.
The aims of the new group are:
- To enhance the town with planting schemes that will improve the environment for the benefit of both visitors and residents alike
- To encourage the involvement of all age-groups, throughout the year, in a range of voluntary activities in support of our project
- To continue our involvement in the prestigious ‘South West in Bloom’ competition, where our past performance has resulted in a string of Gold Awards and other trophies
This website will provide both a background to the project and also a record of what we’re up to.

This website is honoured to have twice won the coveted Barry Cruse Trophy for 'Best Website' in the South West in Bloom regional competition.
We were awarded the trophy in 2010 and 2013.
