Dursley in Bloom
Dursley wins Gold Award in 2016
The Dursley In Bloom committee achieved a Gold Award in the Small Town category in this years' Heart of England competition.
The Heart of England in Bloom Awards were presented on Thursday 15th September 2016 at Aldridge Parish Church Hall and members of the Dursley in Bloom committee were on hand to receive the award. The Town Council was represented by Mayor Neil Grecian.

This is a magnificent achievement for the town and the hard work and effort made by the volunteers of the Durley in Bloom team.

The volunteers of Dursley in Bloom meet monthly to discuss plans for the future floral displays in the town. The team encourages local businesses and organisations to become involved in a series of ideas including the Secret Garden behind the Chantry Centre, ideas from Sixth Formers at Rednock School ( as part of their studies) for more hanging baskets in the town and also incorporating support from The Peak Academy students and staff as well as local Cubs and Scouts.
