Emsworth in Bloom

Emsworth in Bloom is a community project. It was started by Sheila Morris when it appeared that all flower beds in Emsworth were weed beds. Due to lack of council funds to provide floral displays..So, the residents started up Emsworth in Bloom. They have taken over all the council planters and added 10 new displays to the town. This has all been done with donations and grants. They have formed a Green Finger Club of local residents who asset with the project. It has been an amazing success and appreciated by residents and visitors.

Sheila said,  “I always say it, but, there would be no Emsworth in Bloom without the amazing band of helpers who plant up and maintain the planters all year. A big thank you to you all”.

Emsworth is a delightful harbour town attracting many visitors. When shops and banks started closing the footfall dropped in the town. The team want to increase the footfall and have people coming to Emsworth to support the local businesses and to say " Lets Go to Emsworth to See the Flowers"
The planters are kept  filled summer and winter. The displays have a great impact on the town. Flower displays make people happy This project has brought the community together. They have a good relationship with the local council Who will help the team manually  when required.
