Pupils team up for town art

Students from Exmouth Community College have teamed up with primary school pupils to bring new artwork to the town.

Year 13 students Amber Poutter, Ellis Jeptha and Fran Evans invited pupils from Brixington School to come up with designs for artwork representing Exmouth’s past, present and future.

They then invited the creators of their favourite designs to recreate them on a large board, which will now be scanned on to acrylic and displayed in the town. The students set up the scheme after winning the inaugural Garth Gibson Memorial Award, a prize in memory of Exmouth’s former town crier.

This will provide �500 annually for a group of Exmouth Community College students to carry out a community project.

The award has been set up by the Magnolia Incentive and the Garth Gibson Memorial Fund.
