Kingsbridge in South Devon is a lovely traditional market town that sits on the edge of a sea estuary surrounded by lush, green rolling countryside. That natural beauty inspired a small group of volunteers to enhance their town bringing floral colour to its very heart.
In 2007 those volunteers named themselves Kingsbridge in Bloom (KIB) and ever since then the team has grown from strength to strength. The team's dedication working all year round has won the admiration of the town's community and visitors alike. Making Kingsbridge a beautiful place to live and visit.
Such praise just confirms how successful Kingsbridge in Bloom is and an inspiration to carry on and progress even further. This site will enlighten you to the activities and support Kingsbridge in Bloom embraces. Remember none of this would happen without those vital volunteers and hope the information within may encourage you to join our friendly group. Our activity brings inspiration, friendship, laughter and above all the admiration of the community that benefits from all that effort.
We are now on the countdown to judging for the SWIB Champions of Champions on 16th of this month and we looking forward to greeting our judges Sue Maddocks and Jon Wheatley who will arrive at Quay House at 10.30am.
Everyone has worked exceptionally hard this year in very difficult drought conditions but in my own opinion this is our very best entry to date and we hope the judges will agree.
The town looks absolutely stunning so thank you all for your fantastic support.
We still have a little way to go so will have to keep an eye on everything including the weeds. Working party details will be sent out in good time.
My recent communication to the group detailed the arrangements for judging day but if anyone has any queries please contact me.
See you in Kingsbridge blue on 16th.
