A Lympstone resident laid on a cream tea for staff of Otter Rotters to celebrate the first bag of garden waste being collected.

Otter Rotters, which provides a composting service throughout East Devon, recently launched collections in Lympstone.

Norman Stacey, of The Strand, was the first resident to have his waste picked up and put on tea and scones for the scheme’s staff to celebrate. Representatives of recycling company SITA, which has been supporting the programme, were also in attendance.

Otter Rotter director Mandy Jennings said: “Residents, local volunteer groups and community spirited businesses all working together have created a local service provision by a not-for-profit community enterprise.

“It’s a great endorsement of how resourceful and innovative communities are in East Devon.”
