Our congratulations to the Amersham in Bloom team who received multiple awards in national Britain in Bloom and regional Thames and Chilterns in Bloom competitions this year.
RHS Community Awards were introduced to replace a physical Britain in Bloom Finals Tour in 2021. Community groups that participated in that competition during previous years were invited to represent their regions digitally through photos, short videos and detailed descriptions.

- GREEN SOLUTIONS (for tree planting)
- NATURE-FRIENDLY GARDENING (for pollinators)
In Thames and Chilterns in Bloom competition Amersham received four Excellent Awards in three categories:
- CONSERVATION AND WILDLIFE (one for tree planting and one for pollinators)
- COVID RECOVERY
- WORKING WITH CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE
as well as Gold for the Memorial Gardens.
