GARDEN enthusiasts flocked to Exmouth's Elizabeth Hall last weekend.

Scores of people went to the hall for the Exmouth Garden Club 2009 Autumn Show, on Saturday, September 12.

The club secretary, Michael Gittins, of Halsdon Avenue, said: "The show itself was a wonderful success in part because of the number of people who came to see what the club had done.

"It was a glorious day and Elizabeth Hall sparkled particularly with the chrysanthemums and dahlias."
