The organisers of Wotton in Bloom have launched the 2012 campaign with the announcement of this year’s colour scheme.
This is the third year running that the main shopping streets in Wotton-under-edge will be adorned with colourful hanging baskets and to mark this special year of Jubilee celebrations they will echo the heraldic colours of scarlet, gold, light blue and white as originally chosen by Constance Spry for the flowers at the Coronation in 1952.
Councillor June Cordwell who chairs the Wotton in Bloom Committee said: “Each year they attract more attention and compliments. They seem to have become part of the calendar in this Cotswold market town. We are planning to have the baskets up and some flower beds around the town planted by the end of May in time for the Jubilee celebrations. I think this will be our best year yet.”
Volunteers from the Wotton in Bloom Committee will soon be visiting all the town traders to discuss this year’s project.
Wotton in Bloom is a project being jointly organised by the Wotton-under-Edge Chamber of Trade and the town’s Regeneration Partnership.
