Judges came to Portishead on Monday to cast an eye over its highly-regarded floral displays.
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.
Portishead In Bloom held several work parties in the days leading up to the competition as every effort was made to help the town’s chances.
South West In Bloom inspectors were given a tour last month and Portishead in Bloom hope to win a ninth consecutive regional gold medal.
The judges results will be revealed in October.
