a large group of volunteers who work together to enhance the village.

founded in 2016 when Reigate and Banstead Council approached Banstead Horticultural Society and Banstead Rotary Club to ask if the village would like to enter the nationwide RHS In Bloom competition. 


Since then, Banstead Village in Bloom has evolved into

a large group of volunteers who work together to enhance the village.

We recently applied for a grant of £40k from the £1 million SCC Community Fund for a new and fully accessible climbing frame, which will form the centrepiece of the proposed refurbishment of the children’s play area. We’re pleased to say that our application has got through to the second stage in the process, and we’re now asking you –  our community –  to show your support for our application by giving us a ‘thumbs up’ HERE.


The more thumbs up we get, the more likely we’ll be successful in the next round.    


If you would like to make a donation of money to Banstead Village in Bloom you can

transfer funds into our Santander account. Every donation is gratefully accepted and

will be used to improve the village.
