Their tour included the town centre, Milton creek country park, Riddles road allotment, The Bob Fowler community allotment, King George V playing fields and The Oaks infant school to name but a few.
The Sittingbourne in Bloom committee, who are all volunteers have worked together with Swale Borough Council, local community groups, schools , Blenwood ground maintenance, Kent wildlife trust and Amethyst Horticulture to improve the town, with funding support from local councillors and businesses.
Ali Corbel – Swale in Bloom Coordinator said "I would like to thank Sittingbourne in Bloom and all the local volunteers for their constant and dedicated support."
Results will be announced at the South and South East in Bloom awards in September.
