Service user Mark entered his home grown vegetables into the Mid Devon Agricultural Show at the weekend. Mark planted and lovingly cared for these in The Woodmill’s garden polytunnels.

There was stiff completion but Mark scooped four awards! Second prize for a collection of vegetables on a plate, third prize for his runner beans, third prize for his potatoes and highly commended for the beetroot he had grown.

When asked for the secret to his success, Mark replied “you must water them daily”.

Emma Clark, Service Manager, said "Congratulations Mark! We are so pleased you got these awards, and can’t wait to taste them.”
