A sensory garden project on Exmouth seafront is taking shape. 

The framework for an art mural, which was painted over the winter months in lockdown, has been installed alongside six flowering trees.

The scheme is the brainchild of Gillie Newcombe, a member of Exmouth Art Group, and is working in association with Exmouth in Bloom. 

Work done so far has been completed by MY Handyman Mike Hote and art club members under instruction from Exmouth in Bloom’s Graham Bell who is also a member of the art group. 

Exmouth in Bloom vice chairman Marion Drew said: “Graham has also marked out the positions for the walkways and walls that will be constructed in the next few weeks.  

“Exmouth in Bloom will then tackle the planting.  

“East Devon District Council’s Streetscene have provided some picnic benches which will be incorporated in the finished design.
