The town entered the competition for the first time last year and won a silver gilt award, and leaders of the project in Halesworth are hoping to go one better with a gold in 2014.

Tamsyn Imison, co-ordinator behind the town’s bid, said: “Everyone has worked so hard but it has definitely been worth it.

“The town is looking wonderful and so many businesses and residents have added to the project with some great looking floral displays.”

Annette Dunning, chair of Halesworth Town Council, was also impressed by the involvement of the local community.

“It is obvious that everyone takes great pride in Halesworth and the whole community has worked together to put on such a fine display,” she said.

The judges were given a tour in a vintage car last week.

A countryside community on the Suffolk and Essex border is still in shock after a Georgian mansion resident was shot through his bedroom door by armed intruders as he fled to safety.

The outbuilding collapsed at around 3.45am as crews used two hose reel jets and two main jets to put out the fire.

What a breathtaking show. At least I think it was, I watched parts of it peering through my fingers.
