It has been a busy Spring for the Bloom team. They have been working in the Precinct, Rose Garden and Woodland Copse areas most weeks, when the weather has been kind enough. It has certainly been very cold at times this year.
The Rose Garden has been weeded, hoed, and tidied, along with borders widened and new planting plans implemented. It is always an ongoing project. The group are looking forward to seeing the results this summer. The spring blossom has been a delight and the garden has been full of colourful tulips and heathers.
The Millennium Woodland Copse has also been strimmed and tidied. It has looked beautiful with a magnificent spring display of snowdrops, crocuses, daffodils, and bluebells. Blue tits have been nesting and it is now a haven for local wildlife.
Babbacombe Bloomers have organised several local litter picks and joined in with the Babbacombe Residents Association spring litter pick.
The Babbacombe Bloom Group paid for new bunting to be hung in the Precinct, in preparation for the return of the traders, after lockdown restrictions were lifted.
The St Marychurch Precinct and bypass flower planters have all been repainted ready for summer planting.
In Foxlands Walk we have added a beautiful piece of artwork, to help create a welcome entrance from the Chilcote Close end of the lane.
Several new recruits have been a most welcome addition to the group, and we are grateful for their support.
