Why is your hanging basket sponsorship so important?

Every year East Staffordshire Borough Council enters Burton upon Trent into the Heart of England in Bloom campaign, the regional element of the national Britain in Bloom campaign. Burton upon Trent has been awarded 14 consecutive Gold medals for its floral schemes including the town centres hanging basket displays.  The judges have also praised the town centre for its cleanliness and being a "vibrant small city”. 

Burton upon Trent is recognised as a floral town where the community are committed to improving the local environment and the continued support of our local businesses is vital to this success.

What can we offer you?

We offer high quality planted hanging baskets for the Spring / Summer seasons.  We will test the hanging basket brackets at your premises to ensure that they meet health and safety requirements and then we will hang the baskets up for you.

Spring / Summer

Towards the end of May we will check / install the brackets for the hanging baskets.  This is to ensure the brackets are safe and can take the weight of the baskets.  Then by the end of June your baskets will be hung for you.  They will be watered and fed between June and mid September.  Watering will then stop to allow the baskets to dry out before they are removed at the beginning of October.

How much will this cost?

Your sponsorship will cover the cost of the planted hanging basket and we will cover the costs of testing the brackets and feeding and watering the baskets throughout the season.

By working together in this way we can continue to improve Burton upon Trent’s reputation as a floral town with increasing visitors where people are proud to live and work.  Baskets are priced at around £30 plus VAT (subject to annual review) and you will be invoiced once the baskets have been put up.

How do I order my hanging baskets?

All orders have now been received for 2023 and we are no longer taking any further orders.  If you are interested in sponsoring hanging baskets for 2024 please contact the Communications Team: communications@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk.
