The annual Anglia in Bloom competition is to be launched at Bressingham Gardens, near Diss.

It is the 20th anniversary of the competition and it will be launched at a special event at Bressingham Gardens on April 12 which will be hosted by the owner Adrian Bloom.

Anglia in Bloom trustee officers and judges, In Bloom delegates and VIP’s will be in attendance for the launch, which also includes a tour, master classes and a lunch.

A tree planting ceremony will also be held to mark the anniversary.

Adrian Bloom, owner of Bressingham Gardens, said: “We will be delighted to welcome the Anglia in Bloom team and visitors to Bressingham Gardens for the 2016 launch of this now prestigious annual event.

“It will also be the first time any event has been held at our new events and wedding venue at Bressingham Hall and High Barn.” During the summer Anglia in Bloom judges will be out and about visiting villages, towns and cities in our region assessing their entry in the 2016 contest.

Entrants will be judged on their efforts to promote sustainability, their involvement with the community, care for the environment and horticultural excellence. T

The winners in the various categories will be announced at an awards ceremony in September in Gorleston.

Brian Thornton, president of Anglia in Bloom, said: “To launch this year’s Anglia in Bloom campaign we are inviting all Bloom and It’s Your Neighbourhood participants to take part in our year of celebration with a tree planting in Bressingham Gardens to mark the special occasion.

“Anglia in Bloom is the eastern region’s unique environmental community initiative and is an exciting and rewarding experience for all involved.

“Taking part builds community relationships and makes a significant difference to the local environment. With the tree we are planting we look forward to sustaining our growing and continued community initiative.”

Last year’s Anglia in Bloom winners Great Yarmouth, Mancroft Ward in Norwich and Wisbech have been entered as finalists for this year’s National RHS Britain in Bloom competition.

  • When Great Yarmouth is mentioned, people think of the town, when it comes to Yarmouth in Bloom, it's definately not the town. Great Yarmouth didn't win Anglia in Bloom, it has no colour, the various areas within the Great Yarmouth boundary won, these should be mentioned not just Great Yarmouth as a whole. Anyone coming to Yarmouth won't see any flowers in the town except for hanging baskets in the market place, the only plants? and grass are in St George's park and the twice annual flower changing on the seafront, which is a waste of money, plant plants that come up at varying times during the year, every year and the council can stop wasting hundreds of pounds.
