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.
Class 1: Shops and business premises
Class 2: Licensed premises
Class 3: Private houses - frontage display of tubs, hanging baskets and window boxes
Class 4: Private houses - gardens visible from the roadI didn't photograph any winners in this category, and they weren't mentioned at the ceremony, so I'm not sure what happened in this category in 2014.
Class 5: Private houses - gardens visible from the road, senior citizens
Class 6: Private houses - perennial planting visible from the road
Louth In BloomIn 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.
