RHS in the community

Have your say

THERE’S a host of different organisations, from more than 1,000 “In Bloom” groups, 1,100 “It’s Your Neighbourhood” groups, 13,000 schools and 1,235 affiliated clubs and societies taking part in the RHS campaigns.

There are all sorts of ways to get involved, whether you’d like to help with planting, join a litter sweep or run a fund-raising event – and there’s plenty in Wearside and East Durham.

If there’s not anything in your neighbourhood, why not start something?
