Market Bosworth in Bloom
Photographs by John Oakley
Bosworth in Bloom started in 1985. That year marked the quincentenary of the Battle of Bosworth Field which took place nearby. It was decided as one part of the celebrations to put floral displays around the town, and to enter the Britain in Bloom Competition. In 1985 we were regional winners, England winners and also competed in the National Finals. Because of this success it was decided to continue to enter the competition thus the Bosworth in Bloom Committee was formed.
