Regional In Bloom Judges visit Town

The Town welcomed two judges from South and South East in Bloom Jean Griffin and Paul Dalby on Wednesday 5th  July. The Town was being judged in the Town Category of the Regional Competition for the first time on account of the increase in the Town’s population. The Judges spent three hours seeing the best the Town had to offer and this included extra time to also Judge Redcotts Recreation Ground in the Regional Parks Competition. Included in the tour was a visit to St. John’ First School  where they were shown round the grounds  by the pupils.  The results will be known in September.
