Harpenden in Bloom


Harpenden in Bloom is a Town Council community led initiative designed to enhance the appearance of the Town Centre, Southdown and Batford, promote a sense of ownership of the Town by the local community and improve the quality of life for all.

The Harpenden in Bloom Working Party arrange a number of events throughout the year to encourage participation from members of the public of all ages from competitions to planting days and the opportunity for local businesses to promote themselves via the sponsorship of flowerbeds.  Groups such as the local allotment associations and the Brownies all help out along with the Town Council's contractors to ensure that the Town shows off the best floral displays possible.
