Wisbech chosen to represent East Anglia in next year’s Britain in Bloom competition

WISBECH will be battling it out in the national Britain in Bloom competition next year, after qualifying to represent the Anglia region in the prestigious competition.

Earlier this year, the town won a fifth consecutive Gold Award and also won the large town category in the Anglia region competition, so Anglia judges have now put forward Wisbech to compete against award winning towns from all over the UK next year.

Brian Massingham, Chairman of Wisbech in Bloom said: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to raise the profile of Wisbech in this prestigious competition.

“So many people have contributed to our success from individuals to community groups, businesses and the town and district councils. We hope that everyone will get behind Wisbech in 2013 and help us prove once again what a winning town we have.”

Wisbech last competed in the national Britain in Bloom competition in 2009 and won the Best Large Town Award.

,More than 1,200 communities from small villages to large cities participate in the ‘in Bloom’ competition each year. Communities are judged on horticultural achievement, community participation and environmental responsibility.
