Henley in Bloom

It’s that wonderful time of the year in Henley-in-Arden when the whole town, stimulated by the promise of warm weather and perhaps, dare we say it, sunshine get together as a community to do something that benefits us all.

No matter if you are a resident of Henley, a visitor enjoying its culture (and ice cream!) or someone who works here day in day out like we do, nothing brightens our day more than seeing our much loved High Street transformed by the local community into a sea of colour, life and community spirit.

I am of course talking about Henley in Bloom which is organised year on year by a tireless group of local residents. Their commitment to make Henley look beautiful by planting colourful blooms all around town is unwavering and our town is all the more splendid for it. Funded by the joint parish council and year round fundraising, the aim is to plant over 100 pots, troughs and planters with over 4000 plants!

Come rain or shine, these tireless volunteers make sure that Henley looks as good as it can for resident, business and visitors alike. There are the annual “best business flowers” and for the residents “best hanging baskets” and for the children over the last 9 years Henley in Bloom has been working with local primary school children to introduce them to growing and encourage them to get involved with the local community and local nature.


The “Adopt a Pot” scheme is a huge success (you can find ours right outside the branch!). Businesses and residents alike have adopted pots and plants of various sizes along the high street and are asked to water and deadhead as the seasons progresses. Not to be outdone, the school children have adopted the toughs outside of Barclays Bank.

All in all, Henley in Bloom is a most welcome addition to Henley, ushering in the Summer with a splash of colour and community spirit, perfect!
