West Farleigh in Bloom



West Farleigh in Bloom


West Farleigh entered the Village category of South and South East in Bloom for the first time in 2018 and we received a Bronze certificate. In 2019 we entered both the Village category and also the Churchyard category. In both we reached Silver medals.


We are entering the same 2 categories again in 2020 and are still aiming to better ourselves, at least a Silver Gilt this year!

Kent Wildlife Trust


We liaise with the local Kent Wildlife Trust alot in our efforts to support the environment in our village.


We have worked together to designate a large green expance managed by the Highways agency as a 'Wilder Verge'

They are also promoting Wild About Gardens which we are embracing. More can be found out here

South and South East in Bloom Competition & the West Farleigh Bloomers!


The ‘West Farleigh in Bloom’ team has entered the 2020 contest once again, in both the Village and Churchyard categories. As you will remember we won Silver medals in both categories last year, so this year our sights are set on ‘Silver Gilt’. Judging is in July so we are really hoping to capitalise on our efforts in the coming months.

Plans we have for spring include, a wildlife walk to analyse what wildflowers our village environment naturally supports, we additionally have wildflower plugs being grown which we will add to areas such as the Ewell Lane triangle, and of course we will also run the tallest sunflower competition again this year. We now have planters at all the road names signs, all with hand carved wooden sunflowers on to brighten them up. If you have further ideas please do email us at Bloom@TheFarleighs.co.uk

We have identified the 2 war graves in the Churchyard at All Saints, those of Captain Fletcher and Bertram Lamy. Those graves already have bare soil in front of them and so our aim is to plant those up with red poppies. 


It is very good news to hear that East Farleigh School now runs a Gardening club for its pupils. Both WF In Bloom and the school club aim to enhance the natural environment, increase horticulture and participate more in the community.


Our next meeting is at the Good Intent pub on Wednesday 19th Feb at 7:30. Everyone is welcome, please do come along and join us.
