Organisers of the annual contest are appealing to people to enter - and if your project especially if the project improves the environment in a way that gives pleasure to the community.
Lowestoft in Bloom committee member, Gloria Honeywood, said: 'There are many projects that are going on in our community which deserve recognition, and if you feel that you are involved with one of these and would like to enter it into our new competition, Best Community/Environmental Project we would love to hear from you.'
Organisers are also encouraging schools to get ready with their vegetable plots, gardens, pots and baskets in preparation for this year's competition.
