Twenty five years ago a group of enthusiastic volunteers became Sleaford in Bloom. It has continued to function successfully ever since and prides itself on working alongside others to maintain and improve the quality of the town's environment.

Coffee Morning and Plant Sale 26th March 2019

April 29, 2019

We recently held a very successful fundraising Coffee Morning and Plant Sale at West Hayes, Northgate, the home of Pauline and Robin Dobson.  As well as enjoying excellent coffee and delicious cakes visitors were able to buy and swap garden plants and support various stalls, including one with Mothers’ Day gifts just in time for the following Sunday.

A magnificent sum of £1018.80 was raised and all proceeds will be used to purchase plants, seeds and compost for the many containers around the town, to be filled with beautiful flowers for everyone in Sleaford to enjoy throughout the year.

Sleaford in Bloom would like to thank Tesco for its generous donation of refreshments and Lesley Sergeant for her help. We also say a big ‘thank you’ for the generous support of everyone who donated gifts and plants and all who came along to the event.

A Busy Year!

January 2, 2019

2018 saw Sleaford in Bloom taking on two new areas of the town, working with many organisations and businesses to improve and enhance those areas.

Market Place

Sleaford in Bloom have wanted to make improvements to the Market Place for some time and, this year, it was made possible through funds received from Tesco’s ‘Bags for Life’ community funding.

New planters were purchased in time for the summer season and the displays were greatly appreciated by members of the public.

Museum Gardens

This was a neglected public area outside Sleaford Museum containing one large bed and two smaller ones that complement the “Dragon”.

Much weeding, preparing and planting were required!

Pebble Mosaic

April 30, 2018

This Pebble Mosaic was created by the MosArt community group of artists from Sleaford and surrounding villages. It is situated at the entrance to Rauceby Banks and was funded by the David Trethewey Memorial Fund as part of the Rauceby Banks Project.

It has enhanced the area of seating, making it very interesting and attractive, with the flow of the River Slea represented in varied shades of grey and blue.

The Pebble Mosaic was officially opened on 11th October 2017 by the Mayor of Sleaford, Councillor Jan Mathieson. Speeches were also given by Ada Trethewey, the Chairman of Sleaford in Bloom, on the Rauceby Banks Project in memory of her late husband David, Ladey Adey on the Pebble Mosaic Project and Pauline Dobson on the history of the Rauceby Banks and upper Slea.
