Mablethorpe

Episode 2 of 15

Chris Bavin meets the Bloomers from Mablethorpe in Lincolnshire, who have been competing in Bloom for ten years. Their plan involves building a helter-skelter.

Chris Bavin meets the Bloomers from Mablethorpe in Lincolnshire, who have been competing in Bloom for ten years but have never won the top prize. With three ambitious new projects planned this year, they hope to not only win their first ever gold award, but also to put their forgotten seaside town back on the map and encourage tourists to visit. Their unconventional grand plan involves building a row of large, colourful pieces at the entrance to the town, including a three-metre-high helter-skelter and a dalek! The local centre for adults with learning disabilities is creating a show-stopping garden to impress the judges, and finally the Bloomers ask the whole community to join in and brighten up the promenade. These Bloomers take pride in doing things differently in Mablethorpe - but they only have seven weeks to get everything ready for judging.
