Maldon in Bloom


Maldon In Bloom


Maldon in Bloom is a community led project established in 1997 to enhance the town for
local residents, businesses and visitors


The Maldon in Bloom Group is a friendly group of volunteers who enjoy community gardening and making a difference in some of the areas where they live.  They have been running in Maldon now for 21 years. 

The group undertakes litter picks around the town, maintains flowerbeds and planters and joins in with many Town events creating beautiful displays.  Most recently the team joined in with the All Saints Christmas Tree Festival and the St Mary’s Flower Festival.

If you would like to volunteer to join the Maldon in Bloom Team, please contact, or call the Town Council on 01621-857373.

Judging will take place during the week of 29th June, when flowers and vegetables will be growing well and all entrants will be invited to a presentation evening attended by the Town Mayor on the evening of 14th July.

The Maldon in Bloom volunteers are celebrating a fourth successive GOLD award in the Anglia in Bloom competition.

A big thank you to everyone involved in the preparations for judging day – those of you that were out all day weeding, planting and cleaning up the town. Also, to the individuals, groups, schools and youth organisations that have helped and supported our community activities throughout the year!

We run the annual Maldon in Bloom gardening competition and hold regular community based events, such as; litter picks, bulb planting and weeding public areas. We liaise with local groups, businesses and schools.
