A stylish summer awaits Marion Toucher from Bridport, who has won the stunning Zest Jasmine Folding Chair after winning The West Dorset Magazine’s Mother’s Day competition in association with Groves Nursery and Garden Centre.
Eagle-eyed Marion, who along with her husband Tom retired to Bridport 28 years ago, counted our brightly coloured bouquets in February’s WDM to be picked as the lucky winner of the chair, which is made from acacia wood and is super comfortable with a sloped seat and angled back with wide arm rests – perfect for relaxing and enjoying any outdoor space.
Marion said: “Oh how lovely. This is so exciting. My husband is in hospital and has been there for two weeks, so this is lovely news to tell him. The house is very empty without him. We will be married 60 years in April.
“I only live a few roads away from Groves and I visit often, in fact I was only there last week, and I know them all down there.”

“We have a large garden, but it’s too wet for me to get out into it at the moment, but usually I am always in the garden. I have a chair which is broken, so being the winner means I will be able to replace it.”
Groves nursery dates from 1866 when Charles Groves sowed the first seeds at a small nursery in Piddletrenthide.
It is open every day at Bridport (DT6 4BA) and Beaminster (DT8 3HB).
