RHS Britain in Bloom is a nationwide community gardening campaign to transform cities, towns and villages. Which has been helping people improve their local environment since 1964. More than 1,600 groups participate each year focusing on community action to transform spaces.
After its successful first year, winning a Silver Gilt award and a Cup for the transformation of the War memorial a new community group have formed to enter this year. The group are supported by the Parish Council. Curry Rivel in Bloom operates as a group to co-ordinate, help, suggest and work towards generating a community spirit and improve the look of the village for judging in July 2018
Representatives of the group are going to a seminar this March in Torquay. There was a public meeting on Monday 26th February to discuss the new planting at the War memorial for 2018.
