David Foster is hopeful the town will retain the Gold standard it has achieved in the previous five years from the Anglia in Bloom panel.

Adjudicators were taken on a five mile walk around the floral highlights of Frinton on Friday, including schools, playing fields and the shopping centres, as well as an edible garden created by children at the Crescent Gardens.

Mr Foster said: “We believe we have had a successful judging day.

“We have won gold for the last five years and we keep up a standard we believe is right.

“We are quietly confident we are as good as last year, possibly better.

“A highlight for me this year is the Triangle Shopping Centre, we were very impressed and the community there had made an effort beyond the call.”

The Anglia in Bloom awards are announced on Tuesday September 9.
