In July, Exmouth Inner Wheel’s joint presidents Sue Naile and Val Whiteley and treasurer Iris Buteux, went to the headquarters of The Devon Wildlife Trust to present a cheque.

It costs around £2,000 a day to manage all 50 of the trust’s nature reserves, including places like Bystock Pools and Bovey Heathfield.

Such areas provide havens for nightjars, silver-studded blue butterflies and other priority species.

The members were shown around the old mill, the last working mill on the quay in Exeter and attended a changeover dinner, at the Manor Hotel, in Exmouth.
