Sidmouth businessmen back tea-towel venture
Sidmouth in Bloom mark 40th anniversary with tea-towel fundraising campaign
SIDMOUTH businesses have backed a fundraising tea-towel venture by Sidmouth in Bloom.
To celebrate its 40th anniversary next year, Bloom president Joy Seward has had a special tea-towel designed and printed.
Now Mike Ford of Fords of Sidmouth (pictured right) and electrician David Gater, have each donated �100 towards production costs.
They are pictured with Jane Sutherland-Earl, Sidmouth in Bloom’s chairman, who said: “Having known both Mike and David for a number of years I thought they would not say no to anything we asked them.
