Why do we ask for this information?

Henley in Bloom

Who we are and what we do

Henley in Bloom is a sub-committee of the Henley-on-Thames Town Council’s Town & Community Committee.  Henley in Bloom is funded by a combination of Town Council funding and sponsorship.  Our Committee is made up of Town Councillors, Gardening Buddies and representatives of other community groups.

We work alongside resident and community groups, including the Allotments Association, Henley in Transition and Henley Wildlife Group, to help maintain a beautiful and sustainable town and create new events and features for residents and tourists to enjoy for years to come. From working with local schools and businesses to holding competitions and community planting schemes, our work covers the whole town and is inclusive to anyone with an interest in keeping Henley clean, welcoming and attractive.

Henley in Bloom is always looking for new challenges.  Previous projects have included:

  • Championing the hedgehog!  Encouraging people to get their own hedgehog houses and create hedgehog friendly habitats.
  • Bee-happy, Bee-healthy, Bee-utiful - celebrating bees!  Encouraging everyone in town to grow pollinator-friendly plants as organically as possible.
  • Greening Great Britain!  Following the RHS Britain in Bloom theme, trying to make Henley less grey and more green.
