Please come along to the Village Hall on 7.30pm, Mon 9th October to hear the result and the feedback from our judges.
To recap, the village entry was in the Cox Cup, a division of South West in Bloom and we can be awarded a bronze, silver, silver gilt or gold medal. There are also discretionary awards that can be made on the recommendation of the judges, if they think any part of the entry was particularly outstanding. All the major displays are still looking excellent and this is down to a lot of commitment from the community for the community. Many people have been involved in weeding, feeding, watering and dead-heading and they have done a great job. If the weather is kind it is hoped that the display at the War Memorial can be kept looking good until Remembrance Sunday.
Also at the public meeting on 9th, which will be chaired by the Chair of the Parish Council, the question will be asked — do you as a community want to enter the South West in Bloom competition next year?
The Parish Council has put aside a budget for Curry Rivel in Bloom in 2017-8, but an entry must be with the active participation of more members of the community, with particular focus on them being able to commit to the project during the Spring and early summer and undertake some physical work on the display areas.
We look forward to seeing as many people as possible at the meeting to hear our result and the judges' comments and to discuss the way forward.
