Uppingham in Bloom is run by volunteers, fundraising, keeping Uppingham tidy, weeding, community involvement and entering East Midlands in Bloom competition.
Uppingham in Bloom is over 30 years old. Founded in 1983 when three traders of the town’s Chamber of Trade got together and decided to have floral displays at their premises.
These early pioneers – June Smith of Stocks, Mary Lloyd of Minerva and Maureen Sumner of Clutter, moved into action and set about involving others. Approaches were made to traders and businesses in the town and the response was amazing. Each year saw more colour in the High Street and Market Place.
