A RALLYING call to help Lowestoft become the blooming best town in the region is going out today.
The Lowestoft in Bloom committee is encouraging green-fingered locals, keen gardeners, allotment holders, businesses and schools to join forces with the aim of making the town's floral displays the most creative and colourful in East Anglia.
The charity will be holding its annual general meeting on Friday, May 28, at the Town Hall, starting at 7.15pm. And committee member Gloria Honeywood told The Journal: 'We would like to invite anyone interested in Lowestoft in Bloom to attend - all will be made welcome.
'It is a good way to meet us without feeling under any obligation to join us, as the more people we can get on board the more we are able to get things done to help improve the look of our town!'
With the help of Waveney District Council and Waveney Norse, the Lowestoft in Bloom committee revealed this week that six new hanging baskets will soon be unveiled in the town centre.
'We are hoping that this will encourage businesses in the town to perhaps sponsor a lamppost so that the town looks more inviting to visitors and ourselves,' Mrs Honeywood said.
