Norton In Bloom
Norton in Bloom entered the village into the
2019 Heart of England In Bloom competition and won another Gold Medal.
Having won the 2018 Heart of England village category, Norton was chosen as one of
only 4 places in the Midlands to represent Heart of England at the National level.
The Norton in Bloom Group
The village has won the Heart of England in Bloom competition in the village category several times and gone on to win at the national RHS Britain in Bloom level three times, culminating in being declared The RHS Britain in Bloom Champion of Champions in 2015. Returning to the competitions in 2018 saw Norton winning in the Heart of England level, being given a gold medal and nominated to enter the national Britain in Bloom, representing the Midlands in 2019. A successful outcome was gained by virtue of then gaining a Britain in Bloom gold medal at the 2019 results ceremony and so the story continues.
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!
