Blooming heck! The Babbacombe Bay Bloomers have landed some top floral awards without a judge to be seen anywhere.
The team say they are delighted after being awarded 12 Certificates by the South West in Bloom Judges.
A Bloomers spokesman said: “This year there was no formal judging, but instead the judges have watched the efforts of the Group and their involvement with the local community, from afar by following media reports, face book pages and their web site.
“Despite the challenging circumstances of 2020 Babbacombe Bloom have been able to keep up with volunteering efforts in their green areas and with all their local floral planters.
“New recruits have also signed up, which has been most welcome. Every member of the team has been highly motivated in keeping the local area as beautiful, clean, colourful and litter free as possible.
“The Bloom Team would like to say a huge thank you for support received from their local traders and sponsors along with the welcome cups of coffee and words of encouragement.”
The spokesman added: “New volunteers are always needed, for details on how to join see www.babbacombebaybloomers.co.uk.”
