I AM writing to say how very disappointed I was that so few shops entered the Ely in Bloom competition this year. Also that the shield we won last year was not collected and presented to Steeple Gate.

I had the first small shield engraved to say The Little shop 2005. No doubt Steeple Gate will do the same. I took the liberty of taking the shield to Steeple Gate so that they could display it in their window.

The competition did not seem to be very well advertised this year, and until one of our staff called in your office we did not know who had won.

What a pity a leaflet was not put in all the shops in the High Street, Market Street and Forehill telling when the display would be judged. The display should have been spectacular.
