Anglia in Bloom visits Hunstanton
Judges from Anglia in Bloom have visited Hunstanton.
They started off at the Town Hall, then went to hotspots such as the Esplanade Gardens, Beach Terrace, Boston Square, the Lighthouse bed, allotments, Oasis and Community Orchard.
The Hunstanton in Bloom committee create open spaces that complement the natural assets of the seaside town.
The winners won’t be announced until October, and the town is up against the six counties in the Anglia Region.
Cllr Carol Bower walked around with the judges. She said: “We had a very good day with the judges, who made very positive remarks about the various In Bloom projects.
“We are lucky to have a strong team of volunteers representing groups in the town who worked together to make outstanding displays, despite the dry weather.
“Christine Earnshaw, secretary of our committee, designed crowns to mark the Jubilee and the Hunstanton Men’s Shed assembled these. They were painted by children at Glebe School and decorated with jewels.
“Businesses such as Searles and Moss Bakery contributed with their entries and the latter provided tea for the judges and participants at the end of the day. It was an impressive community effort supported by an exceptional team of groundsmen. I think we did ourselves proud. However, we’ll learn how we’ve done in September.”
Judges also visited Lynn the morning beforehand, seeing the Walks, Chase Gardens and more.
