Ilfracombe in Bloom

Saturday Only (11am – 4pm)

Annual plant sale & fund raiser

Formed in 1987 we are a small group of local residents who work together to improve the town, hopefully making it a greener, cleaner and more beautiful place to live, work and visit, by organising the planting and distribution of troughs and displays throughout the town centre and by gradually taking over/creating pocket garden areas, planting sustainably where possible. We have regular working parties tackling specific areas of the town as well as working with other groups and liaising with many businesses and local organisations

Most years we’ve entered South West in Bloom, in 2019 achieving a Gold Award in the Champion of Champions category. Local groups can enter in ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ and in 2019 Cairn Conservation Carers, Cow Green Community Garden and Community Resources (Devon) CIC & Holy Trinity Graveyard Group came away with awards from Thriving to Outstanding. The Berrynarbor and Hele Valley Holiday Park also received Gold in their respective categories.

Like most groups we are always looking for volunteers so if you can spare a few hours now & again please get in touch either by email to, by phone to Ivan on 01271 865910 or via our Facebook account.
