Tamworth In Bloom

bloom logoTamworth in Bloom strikes gold for the eighth year!

The 2017 Tamworth in Bloom campaign revealed a very special theme for this year: Tamworth Borough Council has teamed up with the Mercian Regiment to celebrate its 10th anniversary, marking a decade since the regiment was first formed in Tamworth Castle Grounds by its Colonel-in-Chief The Prince of Wales.

The theme ‘Mercian 10 – the Heart of England’s Infantry’ has been at the centre of this year’s Tamworth in Bloom campaign and included a number of festive and floral celebrations to mark the anniversary.

Tamworth has gold fever following another successful year in the Heart of England in Bloom competition – striking GOLD for the eighth year in a row.

The borough’s accolade in the ‘Small City’ category was revealed at a ceremony at Warwick Castle on the evening of September 14.  Representatives from Tamworth Borough Council’s Assets and Environment team attended the ceremony to collect the awards where Tamworth also picked up two additional special awards for the community cabinet, a complete surprise.
