Hanging basket sponsorship - Uttoxeter

Uttoxeter is a traditional market town with a population of around 14,000.  Every year Uttoxeter Town Council and East Staffordshire Borough Council work together to create a beautiful floral town for the community to enjoy, to improve the local environment and enter Uttoxeter into the Heart of England in Bloom Annual Competition. 

In the 2019 campaign Uttoxeter was awarded Gold within the Town Category of the Heart of England in Bloom and was awarded the overall Town Category Winner.   In addition to these wonderful achievements, Uttoxeter was selected to represent the Heart of England in Bloom within the Britain in Bloom National Finals in 2020.  This was an amazing achievement for the Town and is recognition of the commitment in making Uttoxeter a brighter and more colourful place for both local people and visitors to live, work and enjoy. Unfortunately, the 2020 Britain In Bloom National Finals did not take place due to COVID-19 restrictions and as these restrictions have continued into 2021 the RHS will be running the RHS Community Awards instead of the Bloom UK Finals. This competition is only open to a limited number of groups but as 2020 UK Finalists Uttoxeter has been offered the opportunity to take part.

This recognition is achievable because of the valuable support from the residents, local businesses, schools, community groups and volunteers who take pride in the appearance of this beautiful floral town.

What can we offer you?

We will supply you with high quality planted hanging baskets that will flower throughout the summer season giving your business premises floral impact that customers and passers by will appreciate.  We will test the hanging basket brackets at your premises to ensure that they meet health and safety requirements and then we will hang your baskets up for you.  Throughout the summer season we will regularly water and feed your hanging baskets to keep them looking their best.  At the end of the seas for on we will remove your hanging baskets for you.

When will this happen?

  • Your brackets will be safety checked by the end of May.
  • Your baskets will be up by the end of June.
  • Your baskets will be watered and fed between June and mid September.
  • Watering will then stop to allow the baskets to dry out before they are removed by the first week in October.

How much will this cost?

Your sponsorship will cover the cost of the planted hanging basket and we will cover the costs of testing the brackets and feeding and watering the baskets throughout the season.  By working together in this way we can continue to improve Uttoxeter’s reputation as a floral town with increasing visitors where people are proud to live and work.  The hanging baskets cost £25.30 + VAT each.  You will be invoiced once the baskets have been put up.

How do I order my hanging baskets?

All orders have now been received for 2021.  If you are interested in sponsoring hanging baskets for 2022 please contact the Communications Team at communications@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk.

Thank you for your support.
