Among those who attended the group's 50th birthday celebrations were some of its founding members.

Karen Taverner, of Ottery Flower Club, said: "We meet every third Wednesday of the month at Ottery Primary School and have demonstrations each featuring different floral arrangements.

"At the end of the meeting those displays are raffled off for one lucky member to win.

"Other months we have workshops which is much more hands on and is open to all.

"We would love to encourage some more green-fingered young people, who are interested in forestry and flowers, to join too."

Visitors can pay £6 to try out a session.
