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.
It’s been a busy time for the team, keeping up our routine maintenance and our displays in good order in very poor weather conditions, however the ongoing enthusiasm and commitment is fantastic which bodes well for the future.
36 of us enjoyed a wonderful Christmas KIB lunch at the Cottage Hotel where, for a change, we were able swap our gardening sweatshirts for our more formal elegant attire.
Recent recognition of our regional and national top awards has been very well received with an invitation to give a presentation of our team working throughout the year to the District Council Executive Committee. They asked me to congratulate the team and our many supporters for our amazing achievements. My personal thanks to our webmaster Paul Martin for his contribution of material for this event.
We have had an extremely successful year so a big thank you to everyone for helping achieve this for Kingsbridge.
Finally, may I wish you and your families a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.
