The non-profit organization Communities in Bloom gave Minden Hills a rating of nearly 83 per cent because of its natural beauty.

In August, the town was judged on tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry landscape and floral displays.

Members of the organization say Minden is a beautiful place to live, work, play and visit.

They say the banners and murals throughout the town help preserve and celebrate the area’s heritage.

The organization says the community has worked hard to address all Communities in Bloom categories, showing and highlighting some remarkable projects.
