It was a roaring success for Wisbech who won gold in the Urban Community, Large Town, Parks and Cemeteries categories.

Benwick and Chatteris flew the Fenland flag at the ceremony held in St Ives this morning (September 10) after they scooped gold in the Villages and Urban Community categories.

Jill Hindle, of Benwick in Bloom, said: "2019 saw improvement with all floral displays, we were able to achieve this with the expertise and wonderful abundance of plants from Delfland Nursery.

"They added three tiered planter on the corner of the High Street makes a great show as do all the tubs, and the information boards giving the history of Benwick making the village more interesting is a great addition, placing water butts in various locations has most certainly been a great help.

"The Yarn Bombing so cleverly made to cover up unsightly areas is an extra boon, as were the wild flowers. We now have to look to 2020 with new ideas, we welcome any suggestions.

"We have to thank all our volunteers who help to make Benwick a better place to live."
