A FLURRY of hard-working youngsters converged on a Littleham estate to attend a fun day, held to celebrate what they had achieved from a large clean-up operation.

The good Samaritans, all volunteers from places including the community college, youth clubs and local churches, helped clean residents' windows, gardens and even fitted new fences at some properties, over two days last week.

The fun day was held on the final day to reflect and celebrate the good work which was achieved.

The activity was part of a We Love Exmouth project, an annual community scheme which involves support from businesses, East Devon District Council and the Opendoor Ice Project.
