Town award for Douglas - again!

Douglas has romped to victory in the town section of this year's Island in Bloom competition, claiming the award for the third year running.

Port St Mary won the large village award, and St John's took the prize in the village section.

The aim of the competition is to encourage communities to make long term improvements to their environment.

Other winners in the individual category included the Villa Marina Gardens, Ramsey's Mooragh Park, Laxey's Valley and Rose Gardens and the Arboretum at St John's.

The prize presentation will be held on Monday November 5 in the Villa Marina where the overall winner will be announced.

The overall winner will then go on to represent the Island in next years 'Britain in Bloom' contest.
