Hard-working volunteers in Hutton have been rewarded with a third horticultural gold medal in as many years.
South West in Bloom judges visited the village in July and were impressed with the red, white and blue blooms which had been planted.
Hutton in Bloom chose those colours to reflect the 100th anniversary of the RAF’s birth, the suffragette movement and the end of World War One hostilities.
Mark Perry, the group’s chairman, is happy with this month’s good news.
He said: “We have done well the past three years.
“It’s not just my wife Lynn and I, there’s 30 of us in total.”
Mark admitted it had not been an easy year with a long hot summer creating major headaches.

A theme for next year’s plantations is still to be decided.
