BLACKMORE GARDENS’ floral attraction, Gilbert had an unexpected visitor this week – his owner.
Andy Williams and family visited Sidmouth for the day to see how the popular feature, himself on holiday from London, was looking.
Andy was impressed to see Gilbert at work in his allotment and particularly pleased with his work clothes.
The fact that the bedding was raised by Sidmouth College, Sidmouth in Bloom and the district council - taking the Royal Horticultural Society theme of ‘edible Britain’ - showed real community effort.
Andy hopes that further good-will exchanges like Gilbert can be continued throughout the UK as this one has been so successful.
