About this cause
We aim to improve the town of Usk by the imaginative planting of trees, shrubs, bulbs and floral displays. We address environmental issues and preserve wildlife, and work with and educate the youngsters in Usk from nursery to junior age. We continuously plant and maintain the current flower beds and tubs around the town, and foster partnerships with other organisations in Usk to achieve these aims.
How this cause brings people in the community together
All fundraising events have been cancelled due to Covid-19, so we have insufficient funds to mark and celebrate Usk in Bloom's 40th anniversary by enhancing the main road entrance to Usk. Equally, all volunteer activity halted due to lockdown. Working together with flowers has recognised health and mental wellbeing benefits to individuals of all ages.
