Banstead Village in Bloom
Banstead Village in Bloom
A number of different organisations in Banstead and Banstead Community Junior School have got together to enter Banstead Village In Bloom.
We are working together to make Banstead a more beautiful place to live and improve the High Street. Some of the benefits you will see are new planters, filled with an array of pink, purple and white flowers. The roundabout by Zizzis will be replanted, the borders by the Community Hall have been planted with a variety of perennials, the corner of Winkworth Road and Bolters Lane has been cleared of brambles and planted with native plants. There is so much to see and get involved in.
The judging will take place on Monday 26th June supported by the Mayor, Cllr. Roger Newstead and the Mayoress Mrs Mary Newstead(MBE)

Major Event a Huge Success
On the 1st December the Banstead Business Guild arranged the second Christmas Shopping event which was a roaring success. In 2015 there was a very small affair arranged by the Guild which involved a small ceremony, turning the lights at the top roundabout near Zizzi’s, along with some carol singing and an appearance by Santa Clause on his sleigh. The event was very low key as the Guild had only been in operation for a couple of months.
The 2016 event was much bigger and much better, with a raft of celebrities, acts, schools, community groups, retailers, local councillors and others helping to make it a massive success. There was a tremendous footfall throughout the night up and down the entire High Street, with most of the retailers getting in the spirit and laying on food and drinks for the passing trade as well as a booklet with great offers on the night. Many retailers were reporting they had never seen their shops so busy.
Local resident and business man Jovan Mari? from Square Daisy said:
“As a resident of Banstead, there is nothing I want to see more than a thriving High Street and businesses across the village doing really well. The event that was put on by the guild was absolutely fantastic, bringing together all of the key stakeholders to each make it a memorable night. From the Business Guild’s perspective it is about how we can help the businesses, but I think what we saw was how local businesses can play a central role in bringing together all elements of the community to put on a really great event that everyone can enjoy”.
A huge thanks must go out to Michell at ‘The Natural Way;’ in Banstead who was the project lead and really made the event as successful as it was. Thanks to everyone who took part and contributed to make it a memorable evening and one that we’ll hope to better in 2017.
We have added some photos from the evening below to see just how great it was.
