PLEASE COME and support us at the following two events...
SPRING IN THE PARK THIS WEEK
Sonia centre is planning great things for the residents in the garden this year as we can now enter them again. Their last award when this was taken was in 2014 so we are now able to enter them again.
At the last 2016 Anglia in Bloom Awards Halesworth in Bloom were announced as the Winners of the Best Small Town Award for the second year BUT it was Frinton on Sea who had really won it .
The Mayor of Frinton looked as if he had swallowed acid. I said to Anne Fleming as we were waiting to see who would win - they had got it wrong because Frinton had pipped us over our Thoroughfare and our Biodiversity on the Millennium Green where their tree bird feeders in a garden was the true haven of wild life!
So, rather than rush up like La La Land and collect another bowl we waited and eventually shamefacedly they announced that they had got it wrong. The Chair of the Judges apologised to us afterwards and said it was a close run thing. We were never told what had happened but I like to think that really we should have won and that someone also thought the same!!!! Next time it must be for real.
Halesworth in Bloom Awards tomorrow Sunday 20th November at 5.00 pm in the CUT Arts Centre between Norwich Road and Station Road.
We have five lovely Major engraved Awards created by Lesley Pyke and now permanently named in her honour.
