23 February 2015. At the AGM the following officers were elected:

Chair Nigel Powell
Deputy Chair Mike Kemp
Secretary Jackie Mace
Treasurer Lyn Reffold  
Congratulations to the new committee.

 

 

 

 

Nigel's first job was to present out-going chair, Anne-Marie with bouquets in thanks for her excellent service.

  Also receiving thanks was Lyn Reffold for her fantastic fund-raising.

And Ann Foreman for taking on Adopt-a-Plot for another year (and for her 90th birthday). She was delighted to receive a litter picker - what more could you ask for on your birthday?)

Former chair, Margaret Tanner, joined in the congratulations.

 
 

 

And gardener, Tony Thacker, received a gift from Deputy Chair, Mike Kemp, in honour of his unstinting support for our gardens and Hayle in Bloom.

22 February 2015. On 7th March Hayle in Bloom is running our third event in the Hayle Blooming Bee Friendly programme, with a little money we have raised from the Cornwall Community Foundaiton, building on our successful community day in June last year and our Pollinator Masterclass before Christmas. As a result of inviting the local schools once again, and offering to run assemblies on bees and pollinators, Manda Brookman will be running two Bee Assemblies in Penpol School the week before, culminating in helping judge a school Bee Costume Competition, which is wonderful. The school is hugely excited about taking part, and we do hope we can do everything we can to help it support food, health, pollinators and local environmental awareness in the curriculum!

Judges Steve Clampin and Rob Harkness are shown here at Paradise Park with Hayle Mayor Graham Coad, Hayle in Bloom chair Anne-Marie Rance, gardener Mike Kemp and flanked by Alison Hales and Nick Reynolds of Paradise Park. Many of the HIB volunteers joined the judges for the closing event sponsored by Paradise Park.

Volunteers from Hayle in Bloom (HIB) have worked throughout the year to keep the green spaces in the town tidy and chairman Anne-Marie Rance, said they hoped they had done enough to get a gold award.

"The town looked absolutely fabulous thanks to our wonderful volunteers," she said. "They've had to work extremely hard this year to maintain a standard because of all the cutbacks at Cornwall Council. We've also had honorary members who helped out at our working parties."

 
This year's Blooming Hayle event, organised by Hayle in Bloom,  was on Sunday, 29th of June on the King George V Memorial Walk. We had parades, events and lots of stalls. And great weather. Thousands turned out, locals and visitors.
What's a festival without the town band?

Leader of Cornwall Council and Leader of Hayle Town Council!

(both Hayle boys)

Lots of smiley faces
Town organisations galore
Lots to see and do
Bee friendly
The special festival diet - yum...
Bands, singers and dancers - a great day
