Appeal to join in Lowestoft in Bloom

AS the snow disappears and temperatures rise gardeners will soon gladly welcome spring with its wealth of colour. The green shoots are already indicating better times ahead.

Lowestoft in Bloom is aiming to do even better for our town in this year's Anglia in Bloom competitions, but in order to succeed will need the support of private gardens and public parks, in addition to industrial and commercial premises. We are grateful to those organisations that already sponsor a number of our roundabouts which have, in the past, received much favourable comment.

This year it is hoped that our shopping areas will also begin to bloom with the introduction of planters and hanging baskets.

It is pleasing that new shops are appearing in London Road North, but so little colour in this section has, previously, made it a 'no-go' area for Anglia in Bloom judges. Local councillors and the Town Centre Partnership please take note!

Tourism is still a major earner for Lowestoft; to keep it that way it is vital that all sections of the community work together.

Our football club is putting Lowestoft on the map as, hopefully, will some of our Olympic aspirants.

It is envisaged that the proposed wind farms off our coastal region will also bring renewed prosperity and recognition to our town.

So much is happening here and our environment must play its part. The support of industrial, commercial, private and public interests are all essential.
