On Tuesday September 16th the annual awards ceremony for Lovely Louth took place. The organiser, David Fairburn, introduced the awards. Mr Fairburn has been involved with Lovely Louth for many years. The Mayor, Andrew Leonard, presented the awards.

Perennial planting visible from the road is a fairly new category, which was instituted in 2013. This category is all about sustainability. In 2013 Mr H. Kerman won it, as he did this year, but this time there were more entrants and therefore more awards given out.

Louth In Bloom

In Nottingham, Louth was awarded a silver gilt for its entry in the East Midlands In Bloom competition. The town missed out on a coveted gold award by only five points this year. In addition, the London Road cemetery gained a judges award, and the Town Clerk, Linda Blankley, was given a prize for the town's pennant.

Councillor Sue Locking said: "I want to thank everybody who supported us this year. I'm fairly confident we'll get the gold next year."

In 2015 a river of flowers is planned along the riverbank of the Lud.
