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.
