A GOLD award flag has been hoisted into place in Chipping Sodbury after another successful year in the South West in Bloom competition.
 Judges decided that efforts made by the town made it an overall gold winner again, while areas entered into the It’s Your Neighbourhood category were all classed as outstanding.
They included the town centre, a community orchard in Couzens Close, the Ridings sports field and Waitrose supermarket.
Julia Bernau, of the Sodbury in Bloom team, said: “It’s a huge achievement to get another gold and we are delighted at this recognition of the team’s efforts.
“The competition is very much about community involvement and Chipping Sodbury has again shown what its community can do.”
