Hersham in Bloom is a community project aimed at increasing civic pride in the village via participation in the RHS's Britain in Bloom initiative. We encourage residents and businesses to get involved in our programme which will further enhance the village, making it a brighter, cleaner and greener place in which to live, work, and do business. In 2007, our first year, we achieved a Silver Award in the South and South East in Bloom region and achieved Silver again in 2008 and 2009. With our fourth entry, in 2010, we achieved a Silver-Gilt award and again received a Silver-Gilt in 2011. We thank all our sponsors, volunteers, Elmbridge Borough Council, and Surrey County Council for helping us to achieve what we have so far.

Hersham in Bloom is about more than just flowers. Whilst we no longer take part in the competition, Hersham in Bloom Working Parties work throughout the year in clean-up efforts throughout Hersham: picking weeds, raking leaves, clearing litter, and much more. Hersham in Bloom has also worked in partnership with Affinity Water (formerly Veolia Water) to promote water conservation and has handed out Hog Bags and other water saving devices to the residents of Hersham. A very generous and gracious donation of 10 water butts from Veolia Water was used to provide one at the Centre for The Community and another at Hersham Library, so that collected water can be used to irrigate the floral displays. The rest have been made available as prizes for local Hersham residents in competitions organised as part of Hersham in Bloom. We are proud that Hersham in Bloom has placed a large number of half-barrel planters in the village centre. This has brought a welcome splash of colour for everyone in Hersham. If you would like to help us just bring your gardening gloves. Dates of the next working parties will be advertised on the events page or call either Mary Sheldon on 01372 467812  or Les Sharp on 01932 242482  You can also contact them by email.
