Curry Rivel in Bloom (CRiB) greeted the RHS South West in Bloom judges on Wed 8th July, 2017 with Tea and Cake (plus coffee, biscuits and other tasty nibbles) at the Village Hall.
There were display boards and information packs, showing what great efforts have been made by the CRiB team, led by Peter and Sylvia Goodenough. Much credit should go to the CRiB team who put their backs (and in Peter's case put his back out) into the project.
After a presentation to the judges, 'William Pitt the Elder" arrived, assisted by local school children to escort them to the school, to see the children's own CRiB efforts, the judges followed the kids to the Village green for a display of country dancing. The judges were then taken on a tour of the village and returned to the Village Hall to polish off the refreshments.
Judging took place on Saturday 8th July and judge, Shaun Cregan, who is a judge for the RHS South West in Bloom, was very impressed with the entries. There were 27 entries in total, a winner and 2 runners-up have been chosen.
All competitors are invited to a presentation event in the Village Hall next week, Thurs 20th July would be a likely date with drinks and nibbles 6-7pm. Please can you let Sylvia Goodenough know if you are able to come -- as soon as possible, so the hall booking can be confirmed.
