Joy Seward, president of Sidmouth in Bloom, pictured centre with committee members Jan Beavis and David Baker, said: "It is amazing how many people dropped in small tools and different sized pots to Dukes after the appeal in the Sidmouth Herald.

"We have had so many David will be helping to sort them out for the various schools.

"We are so grateful to all the folk who donated them, some of which are quite heavy stone pots, and it is lovely to think the community is working with us."
