Who we are
This website showcases the work of a fantastic group of local volunteers who look after Babbacombe and St Marychurch all year round with floral displays and general maintenance of horticultural and woodland areas.
They are motivated and take pride in the daily feedback from residents and visitors who just love what they do for the area.
Picturesque Babbacombe Bay in South Devon is a shallow, wide, north-south indentation into the south coast. It is bounded by Torquay to the south and Teignmouth to the north.
The breath-taking landscape has designated UNESCO Global Geopark status, one of only seven in the entire UK and 140 in the world? A Geopark is an area of globally recognised, unique geological interest, designated by UNESCO. The dramatic scenery, exceptional coastline and rocks were formed millions of years ago at the bottom of a warm tropical sea and then scorched by the equatorial sun.
We are all very proud of our incredible local geology and rich cultural heritage and encourage locals and visitors alike to explore this fascinating area.
The local community and businesses are very supportive of the group with their frequent messages of encouragement. The group also receive messages of support from followers around the U.K and overseas via face book.
Babbacombe Bay Bloomers work in partnership with the RHS Britain in Bloom scheme. It has brought Babbacombe Bay success and fame winning Britain in Bloom Gold medals. Please look at the RHS Britain in Bloom website; it may inspire you to join us. There are currently over 200,000 Britain in Bloom volunteers nationwide, all working to improve the communities they live in.
