A rainbow display has been installed in the Triangle in Sidmouth to express the town’s thanks to the NHS and key workers during the coronavirus crisis.
Sidmouth In Bloom worked with the town council to organise the display.
The rainbow was made by Sidmouth In Bloom’s chairman, Lynette Talbot, and secretary/treasurer Peter Endersby, using plywood and paints donated by Bradfords Building Supplies.
It has been placed in the raised bed in the Triangle, surrounded by plants from Sidmouth In Bloom’s collection of over-wintered perennials, recycled from the town’s 2019 displays.
Information details are positioned on the bed to help with social distancing.
