JUDGES from Anglia in Bloom were touring the district this week, checking out the glorious floral displays in public spaces in towns and villages around Fenland.
Whittlesey was the first town to come under scrutiny, when judges visited Sir Harry Smith Community College and Alderman Jacobs primary school as part of their tour on Monday.
On Tuesday it was the turn of Chatteris, Benwick and Parson Drove. In Chatteris the judges admired the stunning floral displays at the war memorial outside St Peter and St Paul's Church, as well as taking a look at the wild flower meadow and some colourful hanging baskets.
March and Wisbech will be judged on July 22, with the judges returning to Waterlees in Wisbech on July 23.
This year's competition includes a new parks category, with the district's entries being judged on August 6. Parks that are due to be inspected are St Peter's Church gardens in Wisbech and Wisbech Park; St Peter and St Paul's Church gardens in Chatteris; West End Park in March; and the Memorial Gardens at Whittlesey.
