OVER 2,000 spring bulbs have been planted in Sandy town centre in preparation for Anglia in Bloom.

The challenge of trying to gain an award in this year's contest is now in the hands of the Sandy Enhancement Group's new chairman Cllr Susan Sutton who has taken over from Dr Judy Baxter who served in the position for 14 years.

This week she said she was looking forward to the challenge of co-ordinating the town's entry for the 2007 Anglia in Bloom competition.

The assorted bulbs of daffodils, tulips and alliums have been planted in the main town centre roundabout and nearby Faynes Corner gardens and should ensure a colourful display from March until the end of May.
