UTTOXETER has come under the eyes of the judges as it once again competes to be named among the most beautiful in the country.
Judges from the Heart of England in Bloom competition received a sunny welcome as they were greeted by Uttoxeter mayor Karen Haberfield, Andrew Riley, chairman of Uttoxeter in Bloom, and co-ordinator Tina Jeffery together with sponsors Russell and Sara Heath at the Strawberry Garden Centre.
The group headed to Bramshall Road to view residential gardens on their way to Bramshall Recreation Ground where they were met by Trudie Joyce, East Staffordshire Borough Council's maintenance officer.
They then proceeded to Holly Road and St Mary's First School, the Hermitage Charity Trust Care Home, Thomas Alleyne's High School grounds, the Alexandra Crescent allotments, the Carter's Square development, the town hall, the Maltings, Uttoxeter Library and Bradley House Club's to name just a few.
Councillor Riley said: "I am extremely proud of our florally enhanced Uttoxeter and this would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of Tina Jeffery, our town clerk and Uttoxeter in Bloom co-ordinator, along with our sponsors, officers, volunteers, councillors and community groups.
"You make me extremely proud of what we have done in Uttoxeter."
