Curry Rivel in Bloom won Gold in yesterday's South West in Bloom's award ceremony (4th Oct 2018), in Yeovil at the Westlands Centre. Not only did they win a stunning gold, they also won the Cox Cup for the Best Large Village in the South West. The CRiB Team, who had still been reeling from the delight and shock of these two marvellous outcomes, had to step up twice more to pick up the Michael McGahey Trophy, for 'exceptional community effort' and were joint winners of the Sargent Trophy, shared with Falmouth for "outstanding effort and dedication".
The CRiB team have been led this year by Gina Beauchamp, Laraine Hayes, Annette Stein et al, in a prolonged, dedicated and continuing campaign; they and the rest of the team deserve great praise
This is only the second year that Curry Rivel in Bloom has entered South West in Bloom, they made a fantastic showing last year; from a standing start under the leadership of Peter & Sylvia Goodenough they won a Silver and scooped the City of Bath cup for the best landscape design in the South West region, for the War Memorial garden.
Come and share in this great success and hear how the year went (not too bad, you might think) at the CRiB AGM Mon 8th Oct 2018
Village Hall. Starting at 7.30pm. everyone is welcome....
South West in Bloom is one of seventeen regional/national competitions that make up Britain in Bloom, the largest horticultural campaign in Europe. The aim of the communities who take part each year is to improve and regenerate our local environments through the imaginative planting of trees, shrubs, flowers and landscaping, conservation and recycling projects and to remove the eyesores that blight our streets, such as litter, graffiti and vandalism.
