Exmouth Pride takes place this Saturday (June 22) - and the organisers will be unveiling what they believe to be Britain's biggest sustainable rainbow arch.

In previous years the entrance to the festival in Manor Gardens has been bedecked with colourful balloons, but this year the team wanted to be as plastic-free as possible, and decided to create an alternative.

Community groups including the Exmouth Men’s Shed carpentry workshop and the knitting Yarn Bombers have been involved in making the new rainbow arch.

Helen Clarke, one of the volunteer team organising the event, said: “It has been a real privilege to build community bridges with so many wonderful people.

“Gillian Barrett and her Yarn Bombers have worked with the talented volunteers at the Exmouth Men’s Shed to create a sustainable welcome banner which will amaze all our visitors.”

Exmouth Pride runs from 11am until 6.30pm with live entertainment all day, along with food and drink vendors, a children's area, LGBT+ support, craft stalls and stands representing many local charities, the police and the Army.
