Exmouth is meant to be such a lovely seaside town where so many tourists flock, so what must their first impressions of our town be? Going along Marine Way, they are greeted by long grass on the bank and a fence, which is falling down, by Exmouth Town Football Club. As they reach the end of Marine Way, they see derelict buildings, signs with graffiti all over them and groups of teenagers hanging around outside an arcade.What is this saying to people coming to our town for a holiday? Surely Exmouth, as a town, deserves better than this.Name withheld,(via email).
