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 every since then the team has grown from strength to strength. The teams dedication working all year round has won the admiration of the towns community and visitors alike. Making Kingsbridge a beautiful place to live and visit.
K.I.B. work in co-ordination with the"RHS Britain in Bloom" scheme. It has brought Kingsbridge success and national fame winning Britain in Bloom Gold medals and many other national accolades.

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.
After the busy Winter period we are now enjoying the fruits of our labour's with stunning Spring bulb displays throughout the town.
A big thank you to the team for their unwavering enthusiasm to support our working parties and help in moving forward with our 2017 programme and our new displays for this year.
We now have an increased number of IYN's which form the backbone of our campaign as well as excellent support from our many businesses in the town.
This year will show how we have moved forward again with our conservation and sustainability initiatives on many fronts as well as involving more community groups.
We are especially pleased to have the help and support of the National Trust from the fabulous Overbecks Gardens in Salcombe.
As we move towards the height of the planting season there is much work to do - let's just enjoy!
