Youngsters transform Sidmouth’s Connaught Gardens
Children plant up designs in Connaught Gardens
CHILDREN from five local schools have been transforming part of Connaught Gardens, Sidmouth, with floral displays.
For the sixth year running, Sidmouth in Bloom has invited schoolchildren to design flower beds and plant them out.
In the past week Joy Seward, president of Sidmouth in Bloom, with Mark Pollard, East Devon District Council’s parks development officer, and gardeners from StreetScene, have been busy helping the green-fingered teams who have been reproducing their designs in blooms.
“We’ve had a butterfly, big whale, starfish and one gardening club has done Go Green with a silver footprint,” said Joy.

Thirty pupils from All Saints Infants took it in turns to plant our their border, and children from Sidmouth Infants, St John’s School, Sidbury Primary and St Nicholas Junior School have transformed the garden area.
Joy said: “All the children were brilliant, they answered questions from Mark Pollard and knew about fertilisers and the granules used to hold water to feed the plants.
