We're delighted to have been nominated as one of Co-op Charity schemes to help with our wildflower plans for the summer.  Please nominate us via www.coop.co.uk/membership


We will feature in a new BBC2 30 minute documentary for 1 programme of a 15 episode series that will be filmed during the summer. Filming starts in 2 weeks.  It's called Blooming Marvellous and covers plans, preparation and planting in the run up to and including Judging day ( for us - Wales in bloom).

What a brilliant achievement that our Volunteers work is being recognised and a great advert for Usk and Monmouthshire.


Monmouthshire County Council has congratulated the Usk in Bloom charity following recent news
that it has received the Welsh Government’s Caru Gwenyn (Bee Friendly) award.
Usk in Bloom is the first organisation to achieve this status which forms part of the government’s pollinator
strategy.
