NEWS & EVENTS 2018

Obituary - David Elliott - It is very sad to announce our very good friend and exhibitor for over 50 years, David Elliott lost his fight to Prostrate Cancer on Monday 1st January. His love and growing of Begonias, both Tuberous and Species extends back over all those years having been encouraged by his cousin Cecil Gammon. His support of all the Bideford Flower Shows and the South West Begonia Show have been without a single break until 2016. Even in the last few years when it has been a struggle to get exhibits to the shows he still exhibited right up to 2016 show with the help of friends and family. His other loves of Chrysanthemums, Dahlias and Vegetables made him a very significant exhibitor in our locality and indeed further afield too. I've personally known Dave for over 60 years dating back to schooldays and employing his skills as a plumber and electrician. Clearly the shows will be missing a much loved and respected stalwart.
