Get your front gardens looking their best for a chance to win a Bury in Bloom certificate
Green-fingered residents across Bury St Edmunds are being encouraged to ensure their front gardens are looking their best as an army of volunteers prepare to hand out certificates.
Seventy volunteers will pound the streets of the town from June 24 to 30 to deliver Bury in Bloom’s popular certificates of merit.
They will be looking at the overall impression and maintenance of the front gardens as well as the condition of the plants.
Last year they handed out 1,460 standard certificates and 88 highly commended ones.
Elizabeth Clement, certificates co-ordinator, urged residents to get their gardens prepared.
She said: “It’s designed to encourage and reward effort. Those who receive them are so grateful.”
