27 June 2013. Hayle in Bloom's Sandi and Daphne Morgan were caught by a passer-by who sent us this photograph. They are working on the flowerbed in Copperhouse - and smiling as usual.
 

23 June 2013. Hayle in Bloom's annual celebration, Blooming Hayle, took place today on the beautiful King George V Memorial Walk. We had 30 stalls, Heyl Town Band, Penpol and Connor Downs Schools and Bodriggy Academy and the fantastic Savvy Dancers - all announced by our two town criers. Over three thousand people turned up and the Walk was packed from Noon until 4pm.

Here are some of the highlights. Click here for the programme.

The Hayle in Bloom team went to Weston Super Mare to hear the results of the 2012 South West in Bloom competition.
The morning session is about Neighbourhood Awards and we got plenty of those: the Railway Walk, Bob’s Meadow, Library Wildlife Garden, Adopt-a-Plotters, Allotments and King George V Memorial Walk.
But the afternoon is when the big announcements are made. Hayle is in a group where most of the other towns are twice the size and the competition is fierce. The names were called and lots of Silver-Gilt awards were given. But Hayle got Gold - the only Gold! That meant we also won the Preece Cup! Cue cheering in the aisles.
Well done to the Hayle in Bloom team, our gardener Mike Kemp and his helpers Tony and Anne-Marie.
 
11 July 2012. The big day is tomorrow and the forecast is for heavy rain! Nothing new there then :-(. Make sure you have your waterproofs.
 

9 July 2012. The latest copy of Growing Communities – the RHS community gardening magazine, is available on the RHS website - Growing-Communities.

Take a look, there are some great ideas.

 
29 June 2012. Today saw the installation of the beam engine on top of our flower bed honouring Hayle's World Heritage status. Terry English, armourer to many Hollywood films, created it for Hayle in Bloom and he is pictured here with the Hayle in Bloom team.
