We have regular seasonal activities throughout the year, although being mostly concerned with planting, summer is the busiest time! In winter we make Hollyballs and wreaths in time for Christmas, and have stalls at the Advent Fayre. We have summer plants in the tubs and hanging baskets in time for the Marches, with our Plant Sale at the beginning of June.

Anyone can come along and help out with the activities. We would love to see new faces as well as the familiar faces.

Burgh Beautiful has been able to take forward most of the planting for the summer of 2020. All the summer hanging baskets are now in place and volunteers have been busy planting beds and tubs throughout the town. We hope you enjoy them to the full.


Look out for our 2020 edition of Floral Trails, a free publication available in key locations in the town, which leads you through the various planted areas for which Burgh Beautiful cares.
