Local Gardens Competition

Ilfracombe has a thriving local gardens competition organised by Mike Edmunds for Ilfracombe in Bloom. He arranges for judges from outside the area to carry out the judging – they have come from as far away as Australia in the past!  There are so many entries for this year that the judging will be split between 2 judges. Judging takes place in July with the awards being presented at our AGM to which all entrants are invited and is followed by a magnificent buffet courtesy of Cllr and Mrs Edmunds.

Ilfracombe in Bloom received the ‘Outstanding Achievement’ award for 2015
