Richmond Borough in Bloom, founded in 1990, is an independent community group committed to enhancing the borough’s natural environment for the benefit of all who live, work or visit here.

In addition to our annual Merit Awards gardening competitions open to all resident and businesses and our Best Village in Bloom competition to involve the whole community, we also run a floral art competition for children and one for schools to encourage best use of their grounds.

This busy programme is organised by a committee of volunteers representing the different areas of the borough. There are sometimes vacancies, so if you would like to take part in the year’s planning and implementation we would welcome your call.

Our efforts contribute largely to the outstanding success of the borough’s participation in London in Bloom and Britain in Bloom. We thank you for your support which has made this possible.
