Uppingham in Bloom is an award-winning community volunteer group that works closely with the Gardens Department of Uppingham School to create and maintain the town’s year-round horticultural displays.
This friendly group organises monthly weeding, planting and gardening sessions that all are welcome to join. Throughout the year there are various fund-raising activities such as January’s winter warmer and a ball or dance in the Autumn.
Each year Uppingham in Bloom enters the Royal Horticultural Society’s Britain in Bloom competition in the small market town category for the East Midlands.
In 2017, Uppingham won a Gold Award in both the regional competition and in the National Finals where it was also the joint category winner.
