It's Your Neighbourhood

The Royal Horticultural Society’s It’s Your Neighbourhood campaign is part of the wider Britain in Bloom initiative, providing an opportunity for smaller community groups to get involved.

It’s Your Neighbourhood is a unique scheme for volunteered community gardening projects/groups which are focused on cleaning up and greening up their local area, whether that is the estate where they live or the back alley they share or the local community centre’s outdoor space. It’s Your Neighbourhood is an inclusive, non-competitive scheme which welcomes projects/groups of all kinds.

Every year we have over 500 entries in "It's Your Neighbourhood", and this year is no exception.

The assessors will visit the entries during July, and the presenation of awards will be anounced and presentented at the Main Presenation event, this year being held on 6th October at Somerset County Cricket Ground, Taunton.

How Do I Get Started?

Getting involved is very easy, in fact, you only need 2 things:
1. A group
2. An idea for a project

Once you have these things, you are ready to get started!
