EXMOUTH and Littleham in Bloom's award-winning volunteers have been working hard preparing for their entry in this year's competition - and are looking for help to help apply the finishing touches.
Together with Street Scene from East Devon District Council volunteers in Littleham and Exmouth have been putting the finishing floral touches ahead of the this year's annual South West in Bloom Competition.
The Littleham group achieved a Silver Gilt in 2008, are organising a pre-tidy up throughout the village this Sunday July 12, from 10.30am.
While the volunteers of Exmouth in Bloom, with the team from Street Scene, have also been hard at it preparing the town in readiness for judging.
Exmouth achieved star status last year not only winning the Large Town's Class in the Regional Competition but it also went on to win the Britain in Bloom National award for Large Seaside Towns and is certainly hoping to win some silverware again this year.
The Exmouth group will be meeting for a pre-judging tidy up on Sunday July 19 starting at 08.30am from the Town Council Offices and working their way along the route through the town centre.
