Chesterfield is one of three areas named in the ‘Small City’ category of the Britain in Bloom national finals 2020.

Chesterfield in Bloom is a year-round initiative involving residents, businesses, schools, community groups and a wide range of volunteers.

The group’s aim is to involve more people in improving their local area, the environment and the character of Chesterfield, with the objective of making the town a cleaner and greener place to live, work and visit.



Cllr Jill Mannion-Brunt, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “Britain in Bloom is such a great campaign and we are delighted to have been selected as finalists this year.

“It shows just how well we have done on a regional level in the last few years.”

Cllr Mannion-Brunt added: “It’s also great to see that the bloom projects and competitions in Chesterfield bring a variety of people together throughout the year, so being selected as a finalist is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together once again and show Chesterfield at its best.”



Littleover is also one of three finalists, in its category of ‘Urban Community’.

The finalists are put forward to the national finals based on their progress regionally, and they compete across 11 different categories – including village, town and coastal.

Chesterfield and Littleover will represent the East Midlands in the prestigious competition, and will be visited by RHS judges in August as they vie for a medal, a category win and to be named ‘Champion of Champions’.
