EXMOUTH Tidy Group is, this weekend, joining forces with the town's in-bloom group and the Brixington Improvement Group (BIG) to clean-up the area ahead of the Britain in Bloom judging on July 22.
The Exmouth Tidy Group, Exmouth in Bloom, and BIG will be out in force throughout the weekend removing dead weeds from pavements and roads that have been chemically sprayed and left to die naturally.
On Saturday, July 18, the volunteers will meet at 10am and clear fields near the recreation ground, in Brixington Lane, where picks and gloves will be available for anyone to borrow, who is keen on improving the look of the area.
On Sunday, July 19, Exmouth in Bloom and the tidy group will be pulling weeds by hand.
