Blooming marvellous wins for Wisbech, Chatteris and Parson Drove.

Anglia in Bloom judges have announced the results of this year’s competition with Wisbech winning the large town category.

Gardeners in Chatteris are celebrating after taking a silver gilt in the town section while Parson Drove was given a silver gilt for the large village category.

The results were announced during a ceremony in Gorleston-on-Sea last night.

Chairman of Anglia in Bloom Bob Ollier said: “It has been a fantastic year for Fenland – the best ever.

“Wisbech has again led the way, chalking up wins in various categories, including best large town.

“But the successes go right across the district – with towns and villages picking up a total of 13 other silver gilt or silver awards as well as nominations in a string of other categories.

“The results are a tribute to all the hard work and imagination shown by everyone involved.”

Members of Wisbech in Bloom are celebrating after scooping their seventh gold award in a row, along with taking the large town title.

People of all ages got behind the bid with school children and adults putting in hours of hard work to make the town look good.

In another big win, the town’s St Peter’s Church Gardens won the small park award along with a gold, while a silver was presented to St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Chatteris.

The awards kept rolling for Wisbech, with Waterlees scooping a silver in the urban community award and Wisbech Park receiving a silver gilt in the large parks section.

Fenland cemeteries also did well. Silvers were presented to New Road Cemetery in Chatteris and Mount Pleasant in Wisbech. A silver gilt was given to Wisbech General Cemetery.
