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.
This is the time of year when there is much work to do in preparing for our busy year ahead and starting to put in place some of the infrastructure for our displays and material that will support our entries for the Regional and National Britain in Bloom campaigns.
Post the New Year festivities it has been great to see everyone enjoying working as a team tidying and keeping our displays in good order. The amount of collected cuttings and debris has been considerable but well worth the effort as everywhere is looking good.
February is a crucial month for us and much effort will be put into securing funding from our many sponsors who continue to support and appreciate the effort we put into keeping our public open spaces attractive and well cared for.
