Market Harborough in Bloom Volunteers (MHiBV)have been selected to be the East Midlands in Bloom representative for the national Britain in Bloom Campaign 2016 in the Large Town category.

MHiBV won gold awards this year and in 2014. In 2016 it will be 20 years since the voluntary group was formed.

Coordinator Margaret Richards said: “It will be a real challenge but we have a really good team of dedicated volunteers whose aim is to make the town look as good as we can and continue to work with local schools and scouting groups and we would like to thank everyone who has been involved.”

Chairman Ken Hook said: “This is a reward for all the hard work in previous years and we look forward to the challenge in 2016.”
