Judges had the difficult task of awarding rosettes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places in each of the 24 classes, ranging from knitting to metal work. The 5 judges combined opinions and declared the Best in Show to Bronte Kemp, of Highampton, for her display of museum mounted clay fingers, humorously captioned.
A steady stream of public came along to view the show and admire the talent so prevalent in this part of Devon. Encouraged by the success of this maiden venture the show will now become an annual addition to the calendar."
