George Dawson, chairman of Anglia in Bloom, said: "Once again this year the Anglia region has bloomed, with communities coming together to clear, clean and brighten their local environments. From small villages to large cities residents have taken up the challenge to improve the visual aspect of their streets by making floral displays and clearing litter."

Chris Durham chair of judges and vice-chair of Anglia in Bloom, said: "The 2019 judging campaign has been very successful with the team of judges travelling and judging the whole of the Anglia region, the standard of the entries once again has been raised and the hard work and enthusiasm from of all communities really shone through making judging a pleasure for all."
