Bampton in Devon

Bampton in Bloom - the StageBampton in Bloom

Since the 1970's, Bampton has regularly taken part in the 'Britain in Bloom' competition - however, from 2008 we have not entered the competition.

The requirements for the SW in Bloom competition have become so much that it has been difficult to find the manpower to cover all aspects required - however, Bampton will still be full of colour and blooms for residents and visitors to enjoy!

To see our town in its full floral glory, watch our 'Town Trail' video!
