South & South East in Bloom is part of Britain in Bloom and runs annual competitions to find the best Villages, Towns, Cities, Coastal Towns,  Parishes, Town & City Centres, Urban Communities and Business Improvement Districts. It not just the large entries abut also the smaller community groups who do so much to preserve our smaller areas and neighbourhoods.

Far from being all about Flowers, Hanging Baskets and Window Boxes, Bloom is as much about protecting our environment, conserving our specie rich landscape and promoting good environmental management and care. We also wish to see the community becoming more involved and caring for their place.  So much so that the 

marking criteria for judges visits has changed this year with community & the environment receiving 60% of the marks.
