Donna Lane from Sidford won two prizes at the Devon County Show


A ‘magical’ floral display created by a Sidford resident won two prizes at this year’s Devon County Show.

Donna Lane was named best in show and the top of her class after creating her winning display using white orchids and black and silver metal.

The grandmother said she was shocked to have won, as she thought she had missed the brief.

She had to create a design based on the theme of ‘Millinery Magic’.

Donna said: “I was very happy with what I produced, but I just did not think I had met the theme - I obviously did.

“I have been doing it for quite a few years and I have attended a few courses. I go to a class in Tiverton, but I do not belong to a flower club.”
