SIR – In these dark days of winter, with all the gloomy national and international news that continues to swamp us, what a refreshing relief it was to join the party evening organised by Sidmouth’s Britain in Bloom committee which, I understand, raised over £1,000 for our town’s entry in this year’s competition.
SIR - In these dark days of winter, with all the gloomy national and international news that continues to swamp us, what a refreshing relief it was to join the party evening organised by Sidmouth's Britain in Bloom committee which, I understand, raised over £1,000 for our town's entry in this year's competition.
The occasion was a splendid example of the homily "the Lord helps those who help themselves" and our community can be proud of the tremendous efforts made by Joy Seward, John Govier and their helpers who provided a first class buffet and a challenging series of quiz competitions.
We are fortunate to have such dedicated citizens in Sidmouth who devote so much of their lives to local matters and remind us that, despite world wide distractions, "charity begins at home".
