LEOMINSTER is sometimes unfavourably compared with its more visited neighbour, Hereford.

But these pictures show that when it comes to looking good in summertime Herefordshire's biggest town [Hereford is a city] knows how to turn heads!

This superb set of pictures by Jon Simpson, of the Hereford Times Camera Club, show off in particular the efforts of members of the Leominster in Bloom community group, as well as everyone else involved in the floral displays around town.

The Grange, surrounded by dazzling mauve lavender, looks superb.

And surely Drapers Lane, a traffic-free oasis with dozens of colourful shopfronts, must be the envy of many towns hoping to attract shoppers and visitors?
