The “fantastic efforts” by all involved in winning a silver gilt award for Wisbech in this year’s Britain in Bloom competition were hailed at last night’s packed meeting of Fenland District Council.

Presenting a special certificate to Brian Massingham, chairman of Wisbech In Bloom, Councillor Peter Murphy, FDC’s Cabinet member responsible for the environment, said the award was “equal to Wisbech coming second throughout the whole of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland – no mean feat”.

He added: “This is a fantastic effort by all the volunteers in Wisbech, by The Landscape Group and by our own Street Pride, Street Scene and Street Cleansing team, not forgetting Bob Ollier, our parks and open spaces manager, for all his knowledgeable input.”

Wisbech won the Community Award for Centenary Green, the Community Champion Award for the Anglia region for Penny Stocks and the Silver Gilt for Wisbech in the large town category.

He also gave “a big thank you from Fenland District Council for all the volunteers from all over Fenland” for their multiple successes in this year’s Anglia In Bloom”.
