At Loughborough Town Hall today Great Coates in Bloom received the coveted GOLD award, the highest accolade available from East Midlands in Bloom.
Formed just four years ago and having only entered East Midlands in Bloom for the first time last year this is a huge achievement for the village.
Recognition for the 16 volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the village looks the way it does.
The village also received a Special Judges Award for the Queens Platinum Jubilee Garden.
In addition Cambridge Park Academy, who work with the in bloom group were overall winners on the schools category.
Judges also praised Great Coates Nursery School who sang two floral themed songs on judging day.
Well done to everybody involved and thank you to all the Great Coates in Bloomers.
