The Black Lion pub wins town council floral competition
The Black Lion pub in Epping High Street has received the town council's rosebowl award for its summer floral displays.
The award has been presented annually by the town council since 1990. The competition is open to all commercial premises in the town.
Landlord Alan Willis, who has only been at the pub for two years, said he was delighted to have won.
Town Clerk Beverley Rumsey said: "It was a difficult decision as we had some lovely floral entries but The Black Lion’s efforts and displays really stood out and looked amazing in our pretty High Street."
The rosebowl and a framed certificate was presented to Mr Willis by Epping Mayor Les Burrows at last night's council meeting.
