WE Love Littleham!Hundreds of residents came together under that strong message as a community week brought the public together for fun, games, conversation and important links with public services.The 'We Love Littleham' week was all smiles as church groups threw a party for households across the estate and village.Youth workers and church groups across Devon joined forces, with the help of Exmouth's ICE team, to provide a youth day, car washing day and a community fun day to close proceedings on a glorious afternoon last Friday.Littleham cum Exmouth Parish youth and family co-ordinator Nigel Candelent - who has established the new Chill youth club in Littleham, said the event was a huge success."It was all about community," said Mr Candelent. "The kids really engaged on Wednesday's youth club, we washed 21 cars on Thursday, with tea and coffee and a chat for all who came."Friday was fantastic. We leafleted more than 700 homes across the estate to remind people, the weather was glorious, and it was fantastically well supported - we had something like 500 residents milling about the Crescent."The week's events were well supported by local services. Littleham PC Sallyanne Southern was joined by PCSOs Nikki Payne and Chris Ball to build community relations.The Exmouth ICE team is considering rolling out the project across other Exmouth wards. Team leader John Prockter said: "We are linked to 13 other churches in town, and our aim was to help Nigel and his team, and it has showed the community of the church cares, and it is not just about preaching.
