Felixstowe in Flower Returns for its 37th Year!

Posted by Town Hall Staff 26 April 2022

Felixstowe is back in bloom as Felixstowe in Flower returns for its 37th year!
Felixstowe in Flower returns for its 37th year! Felixstowe Town Council first introduced the Felixstowe in Flower scheme in 1985 to support the community in transforming the town with flowers each summer. In the first year, 60 hanging baskets were sponsored by local firms and organisations and, from these modest beginnings, a comprehensive community scheme has developed.

Felixstowe in Flower is a partnership which involves the whole community, supported by sponsorship and encourages people of all ages to care for their environment. Our partnership involves local businesses. community groups, schools and individuals, each able to participate and contribute to Felixstowe in Flower in different ways.

 

WE’RE BACK IN BLOOM!

As we celebrate 37 years of Felixstowe in Flower, we hope that this year will be our biggest year yet! Join us at The Triangle on 28 May for the big launch. 

Whether you’re the owner of a glorious garden, sponsoring tub or basket, or entering one of our many competitions, there’s something for everybody to get involved with. If you have a particularly pretty floral display that you wish to share, send your photos to sue.faversham@felixstowe.gov.uk to be featured on our Felixstowe in Flower Facebook page.
