This year’s annual flower and produce show in Budleigh Salterton has been hailed an success.

More than 350 people packed into the Public Hall, Station Road, for the show which highlighted the best gardening displays of the spring.

One of the highlights of the show was 14-year-old Sophia Rehbock beating adult competition in the best store cupboard entry category.

A spokesman for the organisers said this year’s show offered inspiration with not only notable displays of daffodils, camellias and hellebores but also some ‘exciting’ cakes and bakes.
