Pre-school creates eye catching display to celebrate the 50th annual Payhembury Spring and Bulb Show.

Children from Payhembury Pre-School leapt into action to create an eye catching display to celebrate the 50th annual village spring and bulb flower show.

The pre-school joined other groups to make a large display of frogs sitting on tissue paper lily pads based on the theme of lifecycles.

The first Payhembury Spring and Bulb Flower show was held in 1963 after being suggested during a meeting of the WI and the format has changed over the years with more sections and classes added.

However, 2013 should have been the events 51st anniversary, but the show had to be cancelled one year due to the outbreak of foot and mouth disease in the area.

This year’s event was another great success and saw more than 400 entries staged and around 150 people attended to see the range exhibits on offer.

Classes ranged from bulbs and plants, cut flower arrangements, cookery and preserves, handicraft and a children’s section.
