Silver award

STOWMARKET has won a silver award in this year’s Anglia in Bloom in the large town category.

Mayor Anne Whybrow said the hard work had paid off.

She said: “If you think we were up against these larger towns in the area such as Bury St Edmunds, for us to achieve so much with so little is fantastic.

“It is amazing how the community, schools and organistations in the town have worked so hard to acheieve this award.

“It is just fantastic.”
