Leiston in Bloom
For many years now Leiston has come into bloom in the spring and summer months by some gorgeously wonderful hanging baskets, produced by Geaters Flowers. During the spring and summer months the high street is certainly brought alive with the beautiful colours and green foliage. This couldn’t be possible without the help of the local businesses who sponsor these baskets. Without their contributions we wouldn’t be able to have as many baskets as we do. We receive some wonderful comments from residents and tourists who enjoy seeing the town look so full of colour!
A BIG thanks must go to the kind sponsors for the 2021 Hanging Baskets, who still supported this despite the difficult circumstances we have all been dealing with and the economic pressures on them;

Coastal Building Supplies,
Leiston Veterinary Clinic,
Marshall & Lilley,

Sponsor a Hanging Basket
Many of you are rightly disgusted and upset when you find dog mess left in our parks and on footpaths.
The only way we can stop this if the culprits are reported and fined.
The only way this will happen is if you report the culprits with enough information to enable the East Suffolk Council to take action. Please look at the East Suffolk Council website for guidance on reporting dog fouling:
Your name and address will remain confidential throughout the process and your anonymity will be assured.
