Our Origins

Chatteris is a small town in the Cambridgeshire Fens. A small group of people met together in 2005 to form a committee to enter Chatteris into the Anglia in Bloom competition. In the first year, their efforts resulted in a bronze award. 2006 saw Chatteris obtaining a Silver award in the judging. 2007 brought a silver gilt as did 2008. In 2009 we got a Gold. 2013 saw the Town awarded Silver Gilt. So in 2014 Chatteris would really like to win back the Gold. The Chatteris Town in Bloom group is made up of volunteers who all share a common objective- to make the town a more attractive place in which to work and live. The Town is lucky in that it has a great community spirit. The "In Bloom" group works to involve all of the community in the job of making Chatteris bloom. That includes businesses, residents, schools, youth groups and the local councils. Please look at our other pages find out more about our fund raising events and our competitions.
