Members of Exmouth in Bloom are hoping that town residents will again pitch in to support their work, as they go for gold again.

The Exmouth in Bloom Friends’ Group began in 2011, and to date has raised over £5,000 towards the cost of flowers, shrubs, compost and watering in and around Exmouth town centre.

The group is now launching its 2015 fundraising campaign, as it aims once again to achieve gold status in the South West in Bloom competition.

Friends’ group secretary Linda Dennis said: “Last year, 165 people joined the friends’ group; we are hoping that even more will join in 2015.

“The bloom committee thanks everyone who has supported the group and helped us to achieve another RHS Gold award.

“Without the financial support of our friends and many sponsors, we could not keep up the high standard of floral displays.

“If you have not yet become a member, please join us and help to raise much-needed funding towards the cost of flower displays and hanging baskets in Exmouth.”

The fee to join the friends’ group is £5 per year for a personal membership, or £10 for a business, group or organisation.

Members will receive a membership card, and three newsletters a year, telling them about the projects the money raised has been spent on.

Application forms are available from Exmouth Town Hall, Exmouth Library, Exmouth Tourist Information and Kings’ Garden and Leisure Centre.

The group adds that membership renewal forms are currently being delivered, and asks existing members to get in touch if they have not yet received one.

● Forms can also be downloaded from the group’s website, or are available via Linda, on 01395 741920, or Exmouth in Bloom chairman Ann Wheeler, on 01395 263513.
