Judges from the Britain in Bloom competition have been in Sark this week, assessing the floral displays, gardens and wild habitats.

This year we're in the coastal category, which is better for us, because of course Sark's coast is wonderful, and we can stress, not only the traditional Britain in Bloom, pots, plants and flowers, but also our marine and maritime environment.

Sark won the Silver Gilt award for Best Village in 2017.

This year's winners will be announced in October.
