Maldon: Town comes second in regional bloom competition for seventh year running
Maldon's battle cry to top the lot in this year’s Anglia In Bloom competition went unanswered as the town was awarded second place - for the seventh year running.
Organisers of the Maldon In Bloom awards hoped they could defy tradition and scoop the elusive gold.
But despite the best efforts of all involved, judges decided to award Maldon the prestigious Silver Gilt award and give the top prize to Sudbury and nearby Halstead instead.
It has now been seven years since Maldon saw gold.
Maldon Primary School’s vegetable garden was nominated for the best young people’s project for children aged 12 and under, but it lost out to a project at Edgar Sewter School in Halesworth.
