A £500 grant has been handed to Kirby in Bloom gardening volunteers for new flower display boxes.

The group is responsible for the floral displays through Kirby-le-Soken.

And members are celebrating after Frinton and Walton Town Council agreed to give them a £500 grant.

It will pay for a host of new boxes and planters to help brighten the village.

The town council also has cash available for Frinton in Bloom and Walton in Bloom if and when members apply for grants.
