NBIB were delighted to be chosen as one of the six Scottish finalists for Britain in Bloom 2020. Having won the coveted Rosebowl for best Scottish entrant in Keep Scotland Beautiful 2019. Sadly, due to the current crisis, this event has had to be postponed. With luck they will be working hard to impress the UK judges in August 2021. Despite this set back, the 20+ hands on volunteers, when possible, continue to spend Monday morning tidying, weeding and planting to make North Berwick look beautiful. NB was last in the UK competition in 2017 when they won the latest in a series of gold medals.
