Altona in Bloom is sprucing up a main entrance to town.

The north entrance between highway 30 and the merge into town will soon be decorated with Altona's theme flower.

Co-ordinator Grace Braun says the goal is to make the entrance more inviting and to bring the sunflower back into motion.

She says it's almost disappeared in the years and they hope to bring it back.

Braun adds currently they are too early into the project to know what the estimated cost will be or when the project will be complete.

She says with the memory garden being built they will need volunteers to help with both projects.
