Exmouth families have again done their bit for nature at the latest Family Muck-in Day, organised by the National Trust.

The event was held at the trust’s Lower Halsdon Farm, and saw volunteers helping to carry out essential maintenance tasks.

They were able to have a go at sawing and chopping with loppers and saws, and toasting marshmallows on a campfire.

The next Family Muck-in Day at Lower Halsdon Farm will take place on Sunday, February 21, between 10am and 3pm.

It is free to attend, and no booking is required – just drop in.

All ages are welcome, but children must be accompanied by an adult.

Dogs are not allowed.

Stout footwear and weather-appropriate clothing should be worn.

Tools and gloves will be provided.
