The Norton in Bloom Group
The village has an unparalleled history of taking part in competitions to highlight the village horticulture, led initially by the Women’s Institute, and a record is maintained by way of brass plaques on the ‘Best Kept Village’ sign in the centre of the village. (Norton was the last village to win this before the scheme was dropped and was allowed to keep the sign). We are not aware of anywhere else that has such a long tradition along with so
As well as managing the horticultural direction the village takes, the group also organises various gardening and environmental events.
Although it has a formal structure, and minutes of its monthly meetings are distributed, it is friendly group, who meet in the Hind Head on the first Thursday of the month They are ably assisted by lots of village people who do not attend meetings, but do their bit to keep
the place looking good, and help in other ways.
Many people help in all sorts of ways, but more are always needed!
