Around 100 people took a walk down memory lane to reminisce about 80 years of Exmouth Sea Scouts.

A special party was held at the scout hut where guests, including town mayor Steve Gazzard, got the chance to view old photographs - one dating back more than 70 years.

As well as remembering the past, visitors were shown the future plans for the hut.

Although not a fundraising event, more than £140 in donations was collected.

The scouts are currently raising funds to make improvements to their hut, located in the Imperial Recreation Ground, and secure the group's future.

Dave Radford, scout leader, said: "It was great to see so many people and former scouts during the open day.

"Our current fundraising venture means we will be here in another 80 years."

Donations can be made in person or by going to wonderful.org
