RNLI Yellow Welly Cobble Wobble, 5th May

Run with 12ish wobbly off road miles of Devon hills for charity. The RNLI Yellow Welly Cobble Wobble will take you on a trip through time with special access to the Clovelly estate. You will take gentle undulations on fire roads through plantations, trails weaving through woodland, challenging climbs and technical descents. The course will find you running through the ancient woodland of Brownsham woods with a lot of elevation and then negotiate pebbles on the beach at Mouth Mill. You will experience the high cliffs of the north Devon coastline, with stunning views of Lundy and across to Exmoor. For the final challenge, a ‘sprint’ finish up through cobbled streets of the famous and picturesque fishing village of Clovelly.

Online booking only. £28 limited to 200 entries.

Britain in Bloom, BBC2, 26 March. Clovelly, winner of National Gold Award 2018, to feature in this series. Ellie Jarvis.

Episode 2, presented by Chris Bavin, was aired on 26, March 2019 and can still be viewed for 22 days


This programme explored the particular challenges of gardening in Clovelly and the often creative ways that residents approach ‘Bloom’. Imagine the effort involved in sledging materials such as gravel, decking, compost etc. to their cottages!

Presenter Chris Bavin spent time in the village, filming members of the Clovelly Community Gardening Group in the months leading up to and including the judging day – when esteemed
RHS Judges visited to assess the groups efforts. Will the group be awarded gold?

Su Maddocks leads the Clovelly in Bloom project:

“With over 1600 communities entering Britain in Bloom each year, we were both surprised and thrilled to be chosen to be one of the 15 communities to be filmed for the 2nd series of the programme. It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase our beautiful village and the culmination of our year-round efforts.”

“Personally I am really excited to see if we have managed to share with the wider audience, the amazing impact Britain in Bloom has had on both our community and the proactive initiatives we are taking to care for our environment. I also hope it shows what great fun we had doing it!”

“In a busy tourist destination like ours it is all too easy to forget, when the place is full of tourists, that there is a community of people, who live here all year round and call it home. Britain in Bloom has encouraged us to want to make our village both look special and to look after our wildlife and environment, for us and not just for those who visit.”

Lentsherd, Shrove Tuesday. Ellie Jarvis

Despite the challenging circumstances of torrential rain, which impacted the numbers of children and parents attending, it actually turned out to be very enjoyable!

Spotlight and Westcountry TV came to film and managed to create lovely pieces, one live and one pre-recorded for an hour later.    They spoke to several children, and others attending including The Hon. John Rous.

There was a lovely atmosphere and it was in fact delightful!                                     Watch the  video
