Sidmouth schoolchildren thanked for bloom work
SCHOOLCHILDREN were this week thanked for their efforts in making Sidmouth look bloomin’ beautiful.
Sidmouth in Bloom president, Joy Seward, said green-fingered youngsters played a huge part in the town’s best-ever South West in Bloom success.
Joy visited Sidmouth C of E Primary School this week to hand out gold awards.
Five schools landed Sidmouth in Bloom prizes, with Sidbury Primary scoring the shield and St John’s the silver gilt.
“Children from every school have worked incredibly hard,” Joy told the Herald.
