The Budleigh Spring Flower Show, held at the Public Hall prior to the Government guidelines advising against big public events, attracted many visitors and entries.

There were lots of daffodils, camelias and other spring blooms as well as home-produced cakes. Childrens’ cookery was also well supported.

Visitors supported what turned out to be the last event in the Public Hall before the pandemic arrangements began.

The winners of the cups were as follows:
