The HHIB Committee

The committee is comprised of Chair Cllr Sandy Ellis, Michael Figg, Sylvia Harris, Alan Colgate, Murray Crump, Andy Stempt and Brenda Gulliver.  New members are always welcome! 

What is Haywards Heath IN BLOOM

A community gardening team involving volunteers from all parts of the community and actively supported by the Town Council.  Our aim is to stimulate social interactions, make new friends, learn new horticultural hobbies and have a local say on how your community develops and grows by fostering a great sense of community pride.

 What It Does

The Committee organises the Haywards Heath Best Kept Garden competition, which recognises the efforts made by local residents, groups and businesses to keep their local neighbourhood looking colourful, attractive and kind to the environment and encourages everyone to think about their local environment and how flowers, trees and plants can enhance the area and protect our wildlife.

The Committee also organises Litter Picks around the town to help keep our town clean and beautiful, our parks green, nature reserves and woodlands litter free for the local wildlife and for all to enjoy. We also enable local community groups to do their own litter-picking.

How does it work 

Haywards Heath IN BLOOM Committee meet every 4-6 weeks and anyone is free to drop in or email hhib@haywardsheath.gov.uk for more information on joining the committee or our latest projects.
