SOUTH Molton's annual Garden Safari has raised nearly £800 for the North Devon Hospice - despite very wet conditions. More than 100 tickets were sold to stalwart garden admirers who visited 14 gardens large and small on show over the two days. This year's safari - organised by South Molton Friends of North Devon Hospice - was dedicated to the memory of Bob Horsfall, who died in the Hospice at Deer Park, Barnstaple, earlier this year. "Bob was a staunch supporter of the safari over the years and a good friend to many local people," said South Molton Friends of North Devon Hospice chairman Sally Cotton."His family welcomed them into his garden, "Bob's Place", over the weekend with wonderful teas."The winner of the animal competition was Maureen Hester, who was presented with a print of South Molton by local artist Stuart Bass.
