DROITWICH Spa is awash with flowers again as the colourful and creative floral trail returns for another summer.

Droitwich in Bloom is back and welcomes five displays around the town including a lido inspired theme, a blossom arch, tropical wall and flower arch as well as garlands suspended above the high street.

The flower trail is now open and is available to visit until Sunday, September 1.

After a successful introduction last year, the children’s art rubbing trail is back. Using a free activity booklet, children can collect rubbings at each location. Stickers and a prize are given to those who collect them all. Visitors are encouraged to share their pictures from the trail by tagging @ValeandSpa and using #DroitwichInBloom on social media.

Gemma Ranford, Wychavon’s place projects officer for Droitwich Spa, said: “Droitwich in Bloom keeps growing in success each year, and creates a massive buzz.

“It’s great to see locals and visitors to the area enjoy the displays and support the local businesses. I hope everyone enjoys the displays and shares lots of photos with us.”




Activity booklets and trail maps are available from Droitwich Heritage Centre, Ace Essentials and Nelly’s Yard Café, which is where prizes and stickers can be collected from.

Matt Nicol, chairman of Droitwich Spa Place Board, said: “It’s exciting to see the number of families from Droitwich and surrounding areas enjoying the hard work that has been put into delivering Droitwich in Bloom this year.


“Thanks to the local businesses in and around Droitwich who continue to help make our historic town bloom.”

A series of free floral-themed arts and crafts workshops are also being held from July, and throughout August as part of Droitwich in Bloom. Led by Spare Room Arts, the sessions are a great opportunity for all the family to learn new skills.

One hour workshops take place at Droitwich Heritage Centre from 11am, 1.30pm and 3pm. The Flower crown workshop takes place on July 31, the recycled flower bouquet event takes on August 7, a sun printing event takes place August 14,a printing and natural materials workshop takes place on August 21, and a papermaking and pressing event takes place on August 28.
