NBIB are delighted to have been 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, they will be working hard to impress the Uk judges in August 2020. Over 20 hands on volunteers spend every 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.


NBIB’s  success is based on growing an unusually wide range of plants  with an emphasis on sustainable planting  and biodiversity.  Additional  projects for 2020 include helping Sustainable North Berwick to plant 450 trees, working with residents to  create   a community garden in Lime Grove  and working  with the Sea Bird Centre to create another  coastal wildflower garden near  the harbour. This will be in addition to  the usual seasonal activities of planting over 90 hanging baskets and 100 planters.


NBIB receives great support from many community groups and works closely with East Lothian Council’s amenity service team;  we know that we can count on them all to help us to put on a good show this year.
