Hunstanton was in full summer flower this week as Anglia In Bloom officials came to assess the resort’s efforts for this year’s competition.

Competition president Brian Thornton and fellow judge Philip Feller visited the town on Wednesday to examine the gardens and community projects that make up its entry.

Starting at the Town Hall for a presentation and introduction from Pat Richardson, the group examined the display boards before travelling around looking at areas worked on by the Brownies, Civic Society, Royal British Legion, Adopt-a-Bedders, Allotments, Glebe School and Community Orchard, plus the street planting in various parts of the town.

Mr Feller said: “Anglia In Bloom is moving very much towards community gardening and it is lovely to see how many local people are working together in these gardens and projects around the town and by working together they have achieved so much.”

Adopt-a-Bedders organiser Max Dolby said: “I’m thrilled with the way everyone has stuck to the task.

“The gardens are looking really good and the compliments from visitors are truly rewarding.”
