Launched by Sudbury in Bloom, the Pride of Sudbury competition is celebrating the residents handy work in the garden and asking them to take photos to show off their green-fingered skills.

With categories such as best front garden, best eco-garden, best hanging basket and best vegetable garden amongst others, there’s room for everyone to enter.

Sudbury in Bloom vice-chairman Andy Howes said: “Lockdown has led to many of us spending more time than ever in our gardens, and has given a lot of people a greater appreciation of the outside spaces we have.

“Although the Anglia in Bloom competition has been cancelled for this year, we still want to encourage everyone to do their bit to enhance our town.

The competition is open to anyone in the Sudbury, Ballingdon, Great Cornard and Little Cornard. Pict
