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.
All of our displays in Kingsbridge are continuing to flourish and it is really gratifying to hear from the community how much they appreciate the work carried out by the team.
Ongoing maintenance is key to keeping the plants going for as long as possible so a big thanks to everyone for this.
Over the past month we have continued to be busy supporting some of our local community events, the latest being our stall at the Kingsbridge show which was very successful in terms of interest from new people joining us and others contributing to our monthly draw.
We are currently looking at what displays and planting we will go forward with for next year and of course for the Winter/Spring displays and we are always pleased to accept ideas and suggestions.
It's been a tough year with keeping our plants well watered but thanks to a massive team effort we have achieved some fantastic results and we can only hope that the judges will agree.
Being a gold winning town is an achievement in itself but retaining and improving year on year is a real challenge to us all and much work, not always evident to most, goes into planning and resolving many issues behind the scenes.
We look forward to our Regional and National Finalist Awards next month.
