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.
Kingsbridge in Bloom has planned for this anniversary to be celebrated as part of our main theme this year which wil be to celebrate the wonderful wildlife that we have in Devon. In addition, there are exciting plans for much of the town's people to come together for this celebration.
I mentioned in my previous reports that much work has already been done to plan for this year's campaign with such things as plant colours /designs and schemes which are essentially in place.
This month, we will also be meeting with some of the local people who will be assisting us to create some of the rather special features in our displays.I will also be contacting some of the businesses and various volunteer groups who have been so supportive with sponsorship in the past and without who's help we could not look to continue with our ongoing work to keep the town attractive and vibrant.
In the meantime, the year round maintenance of our displays will continue so that we are well placed for the start of our 2019 campaign.
