HAVING battled the odds to nab regional recognition, Ottery's 'Bloom five' want townsfolk to back their bid for further floral glory next year.

The Herald reported last week how the town landed a Silver Award in South West in Bloom's Ayre Cup.

The success marked a triumphant battle against adversity for Ottery in Bloom's five members, who have called a special meeting this month to rouse public support.

Chairman Sarah Clarke said: "We want to use all the ideas we have learnt along the way this year to improve. We really need some more help to carry out some of the ideas we have, and also need to do some fundraising."

The group is keen to develop projects with the town's schools and youngsters.

Members of the public are invited to an Ottery in Bloom meeting in the Old Convent council offices on Wednesday, October 14, from 6.30pm.
