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.
What a great year for Kingsbridge in Bloom!
Five of the KIB team travelled to Belfast for the prestigious RHS National Awards Presentations in Belfast on 19th October. We were delighted to receive a GOLD and class winner award which is a great accolade for the town and well deserved for the team who have worked so hard throughout the year to put us at the very top of the small town ‘bloom’ competition in Britain.
Next year this result will put us into the National Finals Champion of Champions competition so we will have a real challenge but I am confident that the team will be supporting this with continued enthusiasm.
Plans are already well advanced for our 2019 campaign and much work to improve some of our heritage sites is already under way.
Our recent celebration and AGM was excellent. Presentation of the IYN certificates all of which gained excellent results was a credit to all of the people involved. My sincere thanks to the outgoing and hard working 2017/18 committee members and the members of the recently appointed committee which allows us to move forward.
We hope to see as many of our team and supporters as possible to come along to our quiz night at the Creeks End Pub and our Christmas Dinner at the Cottage Hotel in Hope Cove.
