It was another amazing performance from volunteers in Wisbech who got together to celebrate this year’s successes in the Anglia in Bloom awards.
Fresh from their success - announced in front of a full house at Burgess Hall, St Ives- the principal Wisbech group of In Bloom volunteers gathered for a celebratory photograph.
St Peter's Church Gardens scooped a gold award in the 'parks under five acres' category.
In the 'small cemetery' category they scooped the sought-after gold award for the Wisbech General Cemetery.
They also claimed gold in the 'large town' category against formidable opposition.
