IT was judgment day for Caistor as judges from East Midlands in Bloom toured the town.

And the community came out in force to show their pride in where they live – something that did not go unnoticed by the visitors.

“My overwhelming memory will be the community participation,” said John Simpson, who was also a member of last year’s judging team.

“We have seen evidence of how the town has moved on again and it has been a real pleasure to come back.

“It is a credit to the community everything that has been done – congratulations.”

Last year, Caistor scored 42 out of 50 for community involvement, helping them to achieve gold status, but this year they hope to go on and win the category outright.

“Everybody today played their part to make up the jigsaw that is the community of Caistor,” said Caistor in Bloom president Ernie Brown.

“We thank everyone who has taken time out of their lives to say how much they enjoy living in Caistor and how much a part of the community they feel.”

The town will have to wait until September to find out how they have done.
