In Bloom awards for King’s Lynn’s brightest front gardens

Green-fingered individuals from King's Lynn have been rewarded for their efforts at a prize ceremony for the annual allotment awards and the King's Lynn in Bloom front garden competition.

Judges were once again faced with some tough decisions as the standards were very high.

West Norfolk Council cabinet member Elizabeth Nockolds explained: 'I've been involved in the allotment awards for many years, and every year I am amazed at how creative and productive people are in their allotments. We've been really impressed.'

Allotment judging took place last month and the deputy mayor, Elizabeth Watson, presented awards and certificates to the winners at a presentation on Thursday night.

Winners of the King's Lynn in Bloom front garden competition were also presented with their certificates.

Judging for the front garden competition was carried out by members of the town's horticultural society, which will hold its annual show in South Wootton village hall on August 20.
