success in the national Britain in Bloom competition was
recognised last night. The town won the Ayres Cup, beating
10 other towns in the same section, and also a Gold Award

team from South Hams Council were awarded both the
Alf Crouch Memorial Trophy and the City of Bath Trophy for
their work in the town, especially in the Royal Avenue
Many local schoolchildren received certificates from the
Mayor, Councillor Iris Pritchard, for their contributions to
the event's Schools' Painting competition; each school also
