This year Rugby in Bloom is celebrating its 23rd year.  Each year the campaign is run by Rugby Borough Council with the co-operation of many local organisations, groups and individuals without whom it would not be possible.

The aim of the competition is to encourage all sectors of the community to brighten up the environment with flowers. There are various categories to enable residents living in the town and villages (with a variety of gardens) to participate. There are various trophies and prizes awarded for all of the categories.

2012 saw Rugby in Bloom celebrate both the Queens Diamond Jubilee and the hosting of the London Olympics. There were special displays celebrating both events around the Rugby town centre as well as two new categories for 2012 only, including the best Olympic display and the best Diamond Jubilee Display.

In this year's Rugby in Bloom competition, Wolvey Old Cricket Field Wetland Reserve were awarded a GOLD and were overall winner in the Environmental Category and Wolvey Village Square were awarded a Silver Gilt in the Community Category.

Wolvey Village Square and Wolvey Old Cricket Field Wetland Reserve
are manage and maintained by members of Wolvey Environmental group.
