Shadwell In Bloom
Friends of Shadwell in Bloom

Alf's flower bed

Shadwell in Bloom relies on sponsorship for a large part of its funding, but recognises that not everyone can afford to sponsor a flower bed or hanging basket. Again this year we have in place 'Friends of Shadwell in Bloom' to enable anyone to show their support by making a small contribution. In return we will acknowledge your contribution and use the money towards our seasonal planting projects and let you know how the funds have been spent.

To become a Friend of Shadwell-in-Bloom please use the form provided in March to each household in Shadwell. Extra/replacement forms can be obtained from the Post Office or downloaded via the link below or similarly from a link on our twitter page at If you still have queries then contact our FOSIB Secretary Stan Pearson on 0113 2736463 email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or SIB Treasurer Debbie Potter on 0113 2657575 email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it For guidance, we suggest a minimum donation of £5.00 per household and for your convenience these can be left at Shadwell Post Office for collection in which case use the FOSIB envelope provided. Individual and group sponsors of hanging baskets will still be most welcome and like all donors will automatically become a Friend of Shadwell in Bloom.
