Organisers behind the Halesworth in Bloom event are gearing up once again this year with the hope of making it third time lucky.
After entering Anglia in Bloom for the first time in 2013 when the town came away with a silver, determination paid off again last year when they bettered the achievement with a gold award.
Preparations are now taking place throughout the town as those behind the event hope to take another gold award during this year’s event.
Organisers have invited people of all ages to get involved to help make the town and its parks and open spaces as inviting as possible.
They are working even harder after the town was hit by a spate of vandalism earlier in the year which involved spray painting buildings and cars.

At least 24 areas were hit and efforts are under way to remove the graffiti.
Tamsyn Imison, co-ordinator behind the town’s bid, said: “It’s a fantastic event and everyone in the town really gets behind it and supports it.”
