The Torbay & Devon Civic Award is an inspiring program that encourages children to do amazing things in the community from an early age.

They learn essential life skills which set them up for their transition into young adults.  It is character building for the children to be given a chance to become involved in events outside of the classroom, especially in helping others in the community.

St Marychurch Church of England school approached the Bloomers group and asked if we could help with signing off parts of the Torbay and Devon civic award for some of their pupils.  We had great fun working with pupils showing them how to plant both Summer and Winter bedding and how to re-paint the wooden planters to freshen them up in time for the South West in Bloom Judging.

Any other schools who are taking part in the award scheme are more than welcome to contact us to see if we can help them in any way to complete their part of the award or to help raise funds for us.

To all pupils and students who have already completed their Civic Award, congratulations and well done.
