VISITORS to the fifth Colyton Grammar School Garden Fair enjoyed glorious sunshine and a chance to contribute to the school's building programme. Organised by the parents' association, the fair, held last Saturday, was opened by Barry Sindall and included specialist nurseries selling plants and a range of garden equipment, craft stalls and entertainment from the Sidmouth Steppers, the school's belly dancing group Maidens of Sheba, the Strolling Minstrels, who were raising money for Cystic Fibrosis, and jugglers, who were raising money for the Burmese relief fund.A spokesperson for the garden fair team said that money was still coming in and that the day was a success. She added: "The weather was very good and it was a day with a lot of activity and variety."There was a lot of student input and they helped in many ways. I would like to thank everybody who contributed in many different ways.
