The town has been given gold status by Britain in Bloom and also landed the St Bridget Cup for best in category and an Art in the Landscape prize for its swan boat project.

Members of Exmouth in Bloom were joined by representatives from East Devon District Council’s StreetScene team and judge Christine Fraser at the Britain in Bloom South West Awards Day in Yeovil last Thursday.

Exmouth in Bloom’s Marion Drew said the group was ‘thrilled and very proud’, adding: “This is a huge achievement for the town and the culmination of hard work throughout the year.

“We would like thank and congratulate everyone who has had any part in helping to make all this possible.”

Earlier this year, the group repurposed a swan boat from the former Exmouth Fun Park as a floral feature at the town’s swimming pool.
