Members of the group, which was established in 1969, came together to enjoy afternoon tea at the Sidmouth Harbour Hotel and Spa on Wednesday, September 4.

Among those who attended the group's 50th birthday celebrations were some of its founding members.

Karen Taverner, of Ottery Flower Club, said: "We meet every third Wednesday of the month at Ottery Primary School and have demonstrations each featuring different floral arrangements.

"At the end of the meeting those displays are raffled off for one lucky member to win.
