St Anne’s in Bloom is a voluntary group dedicated to supporting our town by helping to provide a bright and attractive environment. We work with residents, local organisations, businesses, St Anne’s Town Council and Fylde Borough council, to create wonderful bloom filled public spaces, promote interest in gardening, and support local events.
Throughout the year we plant and maintain numerous beds, containers and large planters around the town centre to create attractive floral displays.
With support from local businesses, St Anne’s Town Council, Fylde Borough Council and our own fund raising events we are able to put on a magnificent floral display each year. We have worked hard to maintain some of the floral features in the town and to introduce new ones.
We receive support and generous donations from the public and the many businesses in St Annes. We would not be able to achieve the numerous projects that help improve our town for the people that live here and for the many visitors that visit each year with out their help.
We are extremely grateful for all this support, encouragement from the local community. Do a little, change a lot.
