Cranleigh pom pom tree continues to grow

Cranleigh pom pom tree

Regular visitors to Cranleigh High Street will have noticed a colourful sight.

Ahead of judges from RHS Britain in Bloom visiting the village last month, Cranleigh in Bloom volunteers found an innovative solution to brightening up an already attractive centre.

Flowers and pom poms were crafted from wool, with yarn bombing in various locations along Cranleigh High Street.

Perhaps the most successful element of this yarn bombing bonanza was the creation of a community pom pom tree, located outside Cromwell Coffee House.

Started with only a handful of pom poms, the tree now sports more than a hundred of these whimsical crafts, which are constantly admired by visitors and children.

All are welcome to add their own pom pom to the tree, which has become a fun focal point for Cranleigh High Street.

Cranleigh is waiting patiently to learn the results of the regional South & South East in Bloom Awards and the national RHS Britain in Bloom Awards, which Cranleigh reached this year for the first time ever.

The regional results will be announced in Brighton on Friday 13th September, with the national awards taking place in London on Friday 25th October.
