The village entered the Anglia In Bloom competition for the first time in 1995, had our initial success in 1997 and have participated in the event every year since. In 2014, we achieved Gold Medals and were voted Best Village in both Yarmouth in Bloom and Anglia in Bloom and we were also voted Anglia's Best Overall Entrant. We, again, represented our region in the R.H.S. Britain in Bloom Competition and were awarded our third Gold Medal, there, in our fourth successive year. As a result of our consistently high standard, we have been nominated to participate in the 2015 R.H.S. Champion of Champions Competition.
We meet every Saturday at 9:00 a.m. at Thompson’s Farm (behind Laburnum Cottage on Main Road, Filby, opposite the Post Office). We spend the next three hours or so doing 'the necessary'. This can mean simple maintenance tasks during the winter, potting on plant plugs on our factory line in the spring, planting out in early summer and clearing up in the autumn.
We are a friendly bunch and Saturday mornings are a really social event. There are no membership fees or weekly dues. You do not have to have any particular skills nor do you need to be a village resident and its not a life time commitment. All are welcome to our team.
