Businesses are being urged to throw their weight behind Nantwich in Bloom as the town goes for gold in the national floral contest.
Nantwich has scooped gold for ‘Best Town’ in the Britain in Bloom regional heat over the past three years.
And volunteers have their sights set on more medal glory in 2017.
But more help is needed to impress judges and cover the costs of turning the town’s planters, tubs and baskets into a riot of colour.
Nantwich in Bloom chairman Tony Percival said: “We have made contact with most of the large corporates in the town centre but sadly no sponsorship has been forthcoming.
“The exception again is Martin & Co, a local company and tremendous friend of our efforts.
“The firm has sponsored our central flower bed on the town square for the past two years and is kindly onboard again for 2017.
