Hook in Bloom is a new initiative run by a group of volunteers in Hook, Hampshire. We aim to make Hook a bright and colourful place to live, work and visit.

In Bloom has three main areas of activity:

  1. A residents and businesses In Bloom competition with 5 entry categories in 2016
  2. A Village Show on 11th September 2016, which will also encompass a traditional Flower and Produce Show – click here to find out more and for an entry form
  3. In Bloom planting schemes to cheer up the centre of the village, identified areas around the village and approaches to Hook

 The project is already supported by the Parish Council, Hart District Council, Hampshire County Council, Hook Village Halls Charitable Association, Hook Allotments Association and Hook Gardening Club and grants from Tesco’s #BagsofHelp scheme and the Big Lottery Fund.

Everyone should benefit from In Bloom. From the child who proudly displays their prize won in an In Bloom competition, to the person who wins the best front garden, to the large business who doesn’t mind their international investor visiting Hook because they are proud of the area where their business is located.

The In Bloom volunteers are always looking for more people to help so if you would like to get involved please email info@hookinbloom.org.

Once Hook has gained experience in running the various elements of ‘In Bloom’ then the ultimate aim is to go for a regional Britain in Bloom award.
