What is Richmond Borough in Bloom?

Founded in 1990, our Bloom campaign is run by a voluntary committee in co-operation with the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

Members represent residential community groups, horticultural societies and business associations from the different ‘villages’ of the Borough.

The overall purpose of the campaign is to enhance the natural beauty of the Borough through floral display in all residential and shopping areas.


Lower Twickenham Village was announced this year’s Best Village in Bloom at the awards ceremony held this week (September 25) at Clarendon Hall, York House, where it was the final presentation to be made by Mayor Councillor Ben Khosa. It had been chosen from four finalist entries which also included Barnes, Hampton Wick and Kew.

This competition, now in its fourth year for all village localities in Richmond Borough, is sponsored by the Parks Department in co-operation with Richmond Borough in Bloom.

Last week Lower Twickenham Village also won a Silver Gilt from London in Bloom and the Chairman’s Award went to Church Street and the Flood Lane car park.

Over 160 gardening enthusiasts attended the event, where Merit Award certificates were handed out to entrants in this year’s business and residential gardening competitions held by Richmond Borough in Bloom.
