South West in Bloom Judging – The South West in Bloom judges will be visiting Babbacombe on the 27th July.  They will be taking a 3-hour tour of the area, to look at the work of the Babbacombe Bloom Team and visit the projects we maintain, our Rose Garden, Millennium Copse, Foxlands Walk and the St Marychurch Precinct. They will meet some of our local business traders, members of the public and community groups.  They will also take a walk across the Downs to see the SWISCo planting, our Bug Bed and of course some of the best views in England.

During the afternoon they will be judging the ‘Neighbourhood Group Awards’ where they will have the opportunity of meeting more local groups and individuals.

The Babbacombe Bloom Group has to produce a 30-page document for the South West in Bloom Judges before they come down to visit. This ‘Portfolio’ reflects a year in the life of the Babbacombe Bay Bloomers team. It has to show Horticultural Excellence, Community Participation, Environmental Awareness, Local History, along with our Past and Future plans. It’s an all-year round team effort.  We are looking forward to the Judges visit and showing them around the area. Please click here to read our Portfolio
