Forres in Bloom (FIB) celebrated 25 years in 2015. During this time Forres won many awards in Beautiful Scotland, Britain in Bloom and Entente Florale Europe. Two years ago The Moray Council closed the nursery in Elgin and ceased provision to local communities. FIB was fortunate to have the use of a neglected nursery site in Forres. The last two years have been spent seeking funding, support and volunteers to turn this in to a working nursery to maintain displays in spring and summer - a formidable task. Now self-sufficient, the group decided to re-enter Beautiful Scotland in the 50th anniversary year.
