The Epping in Bloom group has received a Silver Gilt award in the Anglia in Bloom competition.

The award recognises the efforts put in by the group in bringing colour to the town at the community garden next to the Marks and Spencer store and at the Tower Road green, as well as outside Epping Fire Station and at Epping Station.

The award was presented at a reception held at Gorleston-on-Sea in Norfolk yesterday (Thursday).

Epping in Bloom chairman Victoria Robertson said: "We are absolutely over the moon with the award which was accepted on behalf of everyone who volunteers for the group to ensure Epping is full of floral colour.

"I would like to thank the Epping in Bloom members that helped look after the displays and garden. It has been a very challenging year so far with strong winds, very dry and hot summer days in June and torrential heavy rain.

"To receive a silver gilt award was a very pleasant surprise."

Victoria added: "I would like to give my special thanks to Beverley Rumsey (Epping Town Council clerk) and all of the team at Epping Town Council for their administrative support and help in the garden and at Tower Road.

"Thanks also go to all the children and their families from the six Epping schools, as well as the teachers and all our sponsors.

"It has been a challenging gardening year and we have received amazing support from local people.

"We will continue to keep up the good work to make Epping bloom."
