Volunteers in Holbeach are on “tenterhooks” to see if their efforts in the town will be rewarded at a regional competition.

Judges for East Midlands in Bloom 2015, including Springfields Horticultural Society’s Andy Boyton, were in Holbeach on Monday for a tour of the town with In Bloom members.

The visit went very positively and the judges really thought the town was beautiful.

It started at University Academy Holbeach where the judges met principal Steve Baragwanath before going on to the Holbeach United Community Sports Academy, allotments in Battlefields Lane and All Saints Church.

Graham Rudkin, chairman of Holbeach in Bloom, said: “The visit went very positively and the judges really thought the town was beautiful.

“They were impressed with the War Memorial, which is looking really good, and the churchyard which gave them a bit of a wow factor.

“We’re on tenterhooks until September 16 when we find out the results, but the main thing is making Holbeach look nice because it brings people into the town.”
