A big celebration evening to mark another great year of Sidmouth in Bloom was held last week.
The floral awards 2019, held by Sidmouth Town Council and the Sidmouth in Bloom Committee, took place at the methodist church on Thursday (October 17).
Lynette Talbot, chairman of Sidmouth in Bloom, said: "We have had an increased number of entries and categories, with both a spring and summer entry, gardening under challenging circumstances being judged, and attendance to the award night of around 100 people.
"This event gives SIB an opportunity to publicly acknowledge the support and our partnership with EDDC Streetscene, our town businesses and friends sponsorships, with a special thanks to people who open their gardens to the public and our Sidplanters voluntary working party.
"Tony Moore, one of this year's SW in Bloom judges came to present the RHS 'In Your Neighbourhood (IYN)' and main category awards to the town, and Cllr Ian Barlow presented the Town's Awards. SiB was thrilled to receive the Sargent's Cup and Gold in its category and the IYN's have also excelled."
