Exmouth in Bloom, a group of enthusiastic volunteers, celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2021. It has grown and evolved and works in partnership with the Town, District and County Councils to raise horticultural and environmental awareness in the community and ensure quality floral displays, all year round, in and around the town.
There has been no 2020 South West in Bloom competition due to Covid 19 restrictions, but we are proud to tell you that in the 2019 Champion of Champions category, we were awarded GOLD. This follows our success of GOLD and the St. Bridget Cup for the best entry in our category of Large Town in 2018 .
In addition we were thrilled to receive the Art in the Landscape trophy for our incredible community-funded Swan Project (above)
In recent years the Bloom group has helped to drive forward the transition to more permanent planting, using Mediterranean and Antipodean varieties. We are mindful of adapting to climate change and always have an eye on sustainability, the provision of habitats for wildlife and making space for indigenous wild flowers.
Our aim is to provide attractive displays of plants and flowers and to involve members of the community of all ages, businesses and voluntary groups based in the town. Working as a team we make a positive difference to our surroundings and constantly aim to enhance the beautiful location in which we live.
