Tresillian in Bloom 2019 – Report
A major task undertaken in recent years by the Tresillian Village Improvement Group is taking part in South west in Bloom, one of several regional Britain in Bloom competitions held across the UK. From first competing just a few years ago at the basic ‘Neighbourhood’ competition level the TVIG volunteers are now achieving results in the higher ‘Village Pennant’ category.
This year the bar was raised by the RHS elevating judging of the Village Pennant class to national level making judging assessment marking more strict. The good news is we did not slip down from our previous award level by managing to retain a Silver Pennant. This is a tremendous achievement for our small village and testament to the sheer dedication and hard work of all the volunteers who helped throughout the year.
The following is a random selection of photos showing some of the various projects undertaken by volunteers.
More details about this year’s competition entry can be found in the ‘Tresillian in Bloom 2019’ portfolio submitted to the judges which can be downloaded here.

What a lot of work has subsequently transformed the field into a much loved village asset. It was great to see so many people in the Playing Field over the summer months as well. Greater use has led to more litter though – please pick it up and take it home. The environment is now a major issue and we ALL have to play our part in conservation and improving our standards.
