Just a recap about the goings on at CRiB (Curry Rivel in Bloom)

With a new independent committee, led by Gina Beauchamp, and including a representative from the Parish Council, Curry Rivel in Bloom (CRiB) hopes to improve on its 2017 success. There will be more community involvement for all ages, more sponsorship opportunities and more projects around the village. Regular newsletters and a dedicated web site will help keep everyone informed. For the moment, there is a Facebook page at facebook.com/pg/cribsomerset. please 'Like' us and share with your friends.

CRiB has acquired an allotment at Heale Lane at no cost. Treasurer Annette Stein took possession from Jenny Potts on 3rd Nov. At present the area is down to grass. Future uses may include community compost bins, nursery beds and raised beds. If you have good ideas for using the allotment for the In Bloom project, or can help generally, email cribsomerset@gmail.com.

The War Memorial garden was the project that spearheaded the 2017 entry, winning the City of Bath trophy for landscaping. Plans for permanent planting are still being finalised, but we hope to commemorate some of the people mentioned on the memorial by giving relatives an opportunity to dedicate a plant. We will need a lot of help from able-bodied volunteers to prepare the site and get it planted so that it is ready for the judging. If you can assist in any way, please contact us.

Any Spare Compost? We need to improve the soil at the war memorial before planting the permanent garden. If you have any compost that you can donate please get in touch, or leave it in bags by the war memorial. Offers of good top soil would also be appreciated. Contact cribsomerset@gmail.com or ring Gina on 01458 762296. Thank you!
