Months of hard work and enterprise created a town of which residents can, rightly, be proud.

And the ultimate gold standard accolade was recognised by judges in the Anglia in Bloom awards who gifted Chatteris one of the main plaques at the awards ceremony at St Ives.

The small group of volunteers making the way to St Ives were joined by 300 others from across East Anglia and with heads held high celebrated the town's success.

Townsfolk have picked litter, created flower beds, encouraged business support and kept the town looking spick and span for the judges.
