Awards for blooming marvellous Ramsgate

Ramsgate in Bloom

Ramsgate in Bloom entrants have celebrated a successful year in the South and Southeast in Bloom competition.

Last year Ramsgate entered for the first time in the Seaside Coastal Town category with the harbour area after the idea was put forward by PCSO John Litchfield.

This year the town had six entrants and visiting judges were impressed to see the beautiful displays.
