North Berwick in Bloom regularly features in the local press, and in the community newsletter.
Listed here are our up-coming activities. These are open to all and everyone is welcome.
Our volunteers are visible around town in North Berwick in Bloom tabards, and we operate stalls at various community events.
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.
