We are getting ready to take part in the Great Bike Trail 2017, which is organised by Keynsham In Bloom Community Group. All of the bikes are old, unwanted, and have been donated to this event. So far over 50 groups, schools, individuals, community groups, local businesses … and of course fantastic retirement houses (ahem..), have entered this year’s Bike Trail. Throughout June, July and August, people on the trail can stop off to admire, what we hope will be – a fabulous display of blooming flowers and plants.

Here is house manager, Charlene Fleck, spending her May Day Bank Holiday Monday rubbing down old paint, and giving the bike a new lease of life with an ‘Abbeyfield blue’.

Our residents and staff are excited about planting and looking after the flowers on our Abbeyfield bike over the summer. We hope you’ll come and visit, and pop in to say hello while you’re here.
