Two dozen volunteers got their hands dirty in the Magnolia Centre on Sunday as part of the ‘Pride in Exmouth’ pilot scheme.

Volunteers spent several hours in Chapel Street picking up litter, brushing out shop entrances, scrubbing dirty marks on the bottom of walls and shop fronts, wiping paintwork and giving the place a general tidy up.

The scheme is the brainchild of town team member and local businesswoman Liz Oram, with the support of the town council.

Liz and her volunteers designated an area that needed a some attention and then got to work.

Chairman of the Exmouth Town Team, John Thorogood, said: “On behalf of the town team, I would like to give special thanks all who came along to offer their help and to those community groups and businesses in the town who contributed towards the initiative and helped to make it a success.

“We are now looking forward to planning a repeat event later in the year.”
