Sidmouth is in the running for a national Britain in Bloom award in 2020.

It is one of three nominations for the top prize in the Large Coastal Town category, along with Bexhill-on-Sea, and St Helier in Jersey.

Exmouth is among those nominated in the Large Town category.

The finalists are nominated by South West in Bloom.

Each regional team chooses five places in its area that have previously done well and have a good chance of winning one of the national titles.
