Britain In Bloom officials inspected the town’s most beautiful sights as Portishead competes in the champion of champions’ category this year.

Their tour began at the Millennium Garden of St Peter’s Church and saw them visit areas including the Lake Grounds, marina and High Street.

A celebratory event was held at Jubilee Park to round off a successful tour.

Portishead In Bloom’s Sandy Tebbutt was delighted with how the day went, as the weather held sufficiently to ensure the judges got to see Portishead at its best.
