King’s Lynn scoops Anglia in Bloom award

Custom House and Flowers

King’s Lynn has scooped a Gold Award at the annual Anglia in Bloom Award Ceremony.

Each year entrants work to make improvements to their local environment, undertaking a range of projects from annual clean-up initiatives and bulb-planting events to innovative and sustainable planting schemes and community projects. The competition rewards horticultural excellence, environmental responsibility and community participation.

West Norfolk has an impressive record in the competition and this year has been no exception. Hunstanton was once again named the winner of the coastal category. Heacham and South Wootton also gained Gold. Downham Market was awarded a Silver Gilt and took the award for the best Community Project for its Worldwide Garden. Greater Ringstead gained a Silver Gilt, improving on last year’s Silver performance.

This has been an especially busy and successful year for the King’s Lynn in Bloom committee. The Community Allotment, housed within The Walks public park, has flourished and two of the team, Lally Lee and Herbie Knight,s have been given the accolade of Master Gardeners by green charity Garden Organic.

The team has also linked up with French artists to create thought-provoking landscaping projects as part of a cross-border Arts, Cities, Landscapes project with the Maison de la Culture d’Amiens. A two-year project funded by the European Union Intereg IVA programme.
