It is with regret that the City of Ely Council must advise that there will be no hanging baskets in certain areas of the City Centre this summer.  We have been advised that many of the lampposts on the Market Place and Market Street are due to be replaced and therefore permission to hang baskets in these areas has been temporarily withdrawn, until the posts are replaced.

All other areas will be planted as usual.  The colour scheme for this year is pastel pink, blue and mauve.  The annual Ely in Bloom competition is planned for the end of July with an added category for gardens of religious buildings.  More information about the competition will be published nearer the time.

The Ely in Bloom team suggest that any local business proprietor, who may wish to enhance their own premises with a floral display, should contact East Cambs District Council for guidance and permission.
