It is with deep regret that due the Coronavirus crisis, the Kingsteignton in Bloom competition has unfortunately had to be cancelled.
We hope to resume next Summer 2021. In the meantime, may we wish you all well and please keep gardening. It is during these difficult times that flowers and vegetation can lift ones' mood, as well as being able to potter in some fresh air. If you are lucky enough to be growing some fruit and vegetables then please enjoy them.
