Big crowds flock to Axmouth Village Flower Show

THE 68th Axmouth Village Flower Show is thought to have attracted a record number of visitors.

More than 700 entries were received for the flower and produce classes.

Organisers said: “It was a brilliant day - absolutely fantastic. It was very, very busy and we may have had a record crowd.”

Entertainment was provided by Chard Goldstars majorettes and the Rockwood Dog Display Team.

A highlight was Space Hopper races. Adults hopped across the finish line wearing fancy dress.

Evening entertainment has been hailed a fantastic success by those who attended. The headline act was The Bogtrotters, but local support band That 70s Band are receiving rave reviews.

Village groups will benefit from profits.
