Judges Nolan Mills and Ian Haynes were treated to a tour of the flourishing floral displays created by the Street Pride and March in Bloom teams today (Wednesday)

They were accompanied by members of the teams including Robin and Frances Murray and town mayor Rob Skoulding.

March is hoping for better things this year by improving on the silver gilt the town won last year and also on the silver gilt awarded to West End Park and the silver award picked up for Eastwood Cemetery.

The colourful displays have sparked numerous comments and compliments on local social media sites, now it is a question of wait and see when the results are announced in September.
