The Friends of Leighton-Linslade in Bloom are very active throughout the year, holding Open Gardens events in the town, running plant stalls and finding new ways to encourage biodiversity and wildlife and tackling issues such as litter and graffiti.
Leighton-Linslade in Bloom has been in existence since 2011 and has achieved gold in 2016 following sever years of maintaining a silver gilt award in the Anglia in Bloom competition. Leighton-Linslade in Bloom is a charitable campaign that aims to create lasting improvements to the local environment for the benefit of local residents, workers and visitors, now and for future generations to enjoy rough Imaginative planting of trees, shrubs, flowers and landscaping.
The Leighton-Linslade Open Gardens Scheme remains a popular and much anticipated event in the town. It is one of the key events organised by the Leighton-Linslade In Bloom Committee and raises significant funds for our nominated charities and In Bloom projects across the town. The Open Gardens Scheme also gives local organisations the opportunity to engage with the community.
