Cove in Bloom works to improve and enhance the area of Cove & Altens. The group aims to make this an attractive and enjoyable place to live, as well as celebrating the history of the area. There are three historical industries here: farming, largely in the Altens area; fishing, based in the old fishing village beside Cove Harbour; and quarrying, on the hillside above the harbour. In addition to the floral enhancements, the group adds various displays to commemorate these industries, the latest of which is a sculpture based around Isie Caie, who was the last fishwife in Cove.
