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.
KIB are out woking again!
H.M.Government have issued recent guidelines which allow our KIB team to start work again and keep our town attractive. The safety of the team is our prime consideration. The RHS insurance and local authority have been contacted and the document complies with their advice.
Gill Matthews and Ruth Benton took great spring pictures during lock down around town! See below......
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. Click here to take a look at the RHS Britain in Bloom website, particularly the home page video, to inspire you to join us!
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.
A key sponsor who appreciates all the effort KIB puts in, is
The Creeks End Inn on the square who always supports the team with refreshments after a hard day tending the towns flora. A big thank you goes to the manager Terry Harvey who always has a welcoming smile!
I would like to thank you all for your great support as we come out of lockdown. The town is looking really good again thanks to your efforts over the past week or two and I think we have successfully managed to work safely throughout.
Judging by the comments received, the public have really appreciated seeing us out and about again.
The committee have also continued to hold virtual meetings on-line over the lockdown period which has been useful.
Here is an update on where we are:
