MABLETHORPE and Louth both achieved silver awards in their categories in the 2012 East Midlands in Bloom contest.

Mablethorpe’s silver came in the coastal category while Louth received a Silver Gilt in the large town category.

Nearby Theddlethorpe achieved a bronze in the village category and Burgh Le Marsh a certificate of achievement in the large village category.

Each of the entries was judged during July on horticultural expertise, the maintenance of the local environment and the involvement of all sectors of the local community.

Jeff Bates, Chair of East Midlands in Bloom said: “This year the grey skies and prolonged periods of heavy rain caused a number of problems to Bloom groups.

Regardless of the weather, high standards were still maintained and there were lots of excellent examples showing communities working together to bring long lasting improvements to their area.”

Portfolio holder for the environment at ELDC, Coun Tony Bridges, said: “The East Midlands In Bloom Awards are a chance for the community to become involved, in some cases working in partnership with the district council, to improve the local area through great planting schemes.

“On behalf of the council, I’d like to congratulate all those who have been successful and in doing so ensuring East Lindsey is a bright and vibrant place to both live and visit.”
