Usk is a small market town of 2300 people in South East Wales. Its history goes back to the Romans and Normans.
The Usk in Bloom committee was formed in 1981 by a group of enthusiasts. Since then the town has won many awards and attracted visitors to its wonderful display of flowers. All work is done by volunteers.
