Exmouth in Bloom invited schoolchildren to plant flowers in the Manor Gardens.


Schoolchildren have done their bit to get their town looking its best for summer, by planting flowers with Exmouth in Bloom.

Each year, pupils from different schools are invited to take part and this time it was the turn of Littleham, Withycombe Raleigh and St Joseph’s primary schools.

The planting was done in the Manor Gardens, with plants supplied by Jane Nicholls and East Devon District Council’s StreetScene team. Exmouth in Bloom volunteers were on hand to assist.

Exmouth in Bloom president Pat Graham, who organised the event with Graham Bell, said: “The children enjoy doing it and they get to appreciate how flowers don’t just grow by themselves - we have to plant them and look after them.

“Exmouth in Bloom relies on its volunteers and the people of Exmouth to help out whenever they can, and involving schools as part of our community is as good as it gets I think.”
