Preparations for Ely in Bloom 2007 have already begun. Ely mayor Cllr John Ison handed over a £500 cheque from the mayor's charity to kick-start the campaign for this year's entry into the Anglia in Bloom competition.

Cllr Ison said: "The first year we entered, we were given a bronze award and last year we got a silver award - this year we want to go right to the top.

"It's a wonderful thing for Ely and that's why I felt it was appropriate to help fund it."
