FROM the smiliest sweet pea to the proudest potato, Sidmouth Garden Club members produced a vibrant range of flowers, fruit and veg for their spring show, writes ELLEN COOK

Around 250 members and visitors attended the show at All Saints Church Hall.

“There are some magnificent exhibits,” said holidaymaker Marjorie Graham. “It’s always inspirational to see such hard work.”

“Some of the displays are beautiful,” said Janet Dawid, from Staffordshire. Ena Cottrell, a club member for 24 years, won the Garden Border class and the associated Dorothy Manners cup.

She said: “It’s nice to win, but you can always have a laugh if you don’t. We never take it too seriously.”

Christine Bull, who won a certificate for her rhubarb, said: “It’s made my year!”

Club vice-president and show director John Wright was pleased with the standard of entries: “The competition between exhibitors is friendly, which is the best sort to have.”
