Bloom Update

Despite the extreme heat this summer the Astwood Bank in Bloom team have managed to maintain the magnificent displays around the village.

If you helped in any way by doing a bit of deadheading whilst walking past, or perhaps occasional watering, thank you. In October we will be clearing out the summer displays and planting up ready for winter / spring, so if you want to lend a hand just drop an email to


Ready to Bloom!

Thanks to a grant from County Councillor Jane Potter a new trough has been installed at the traffic lights.All funds collected through Astwood Bank’s ‘Month of Bloom’ events and collection tins will help improve the displays further.
