This year’s Budleigh Salterton Spring Flower and Produce Show has been hailed as possibly the most successful ever, with a record numbers of entries and visitors.

The very mild winter, following last summer’s sun, produced an exceptional array of daffodils and other flowers which stretched the full length of the Public Hall three times over and filled it with perfume, and the very large numbers of store cupboard entries were also said to be outstanding.

Visitors were able to buy plants and other items from the stalls, representing different groups in the town, which were a new and welcome addition to the show, while the pictures in the junior show also contributed their usual splash of colour.

Committee member Sue Peters said it was: “A very successful and enjoyable afternoon for everyone involved.”
