Residents are being invited to help Exmouth land national awards success.

The Exmouth in Bloom Friends Group has launched its 2016 fundraising campaign.

Since it was founded in 2011, the group has raised more than £8,000 to keep the town looking at its best, contributing to the cost of flowers, shrubs, compost and watering in and around the town centre.

Last year was its best year yet, with more than 200 people signing up.

Exmouth in Bloom has a big year ahead in 2016, having been nominated for the national Britain in Bloom competition in the large coastal town category, alongside the regular South West in Bloom contest.

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

Members will receive a membership card and three newsletters a year reporting on the projects the group has funded.

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

Membership renewal forms for previous members have been delivered, and people are asked to let Exmouth in Bloom know if they have not yet received one.

Friends Group secretary Linda Dennis said: “The Bloom committee thanks everyone who has recently renewed their membership and continued to support the group. Without this support we would not be able to maintain the high standard of floral displays.”

Forms can also be downloaded from www.exmouthinbloom.org.uk. Alternatively call Linda on 01395 741920, or Mike and Ann Wheeler on 01395 263513.
