With all the uncertainty of Covid we hadn’t got around to organising our annual fundraising Calendar launch until this week. We chose the Station concourse as the venue, as our 3 stunning tiered planters there, are featured on the calendar front. We were very pleased and grateful, that the Mayor of Exmouth, Councillor Steve Gazzard, his consort Diane, and the Town Crier, Roger Bourgein, came to the event along with 14 Bloom volunteers. Councillor Gazzard spoke about how much the work of Exmouth in Bloom is appreciated by residents and visitors and what a difference it makes to the well-being of people to see all the floral displays.
Steve also presented Jenny Willmott with a gift, to thank her and mark her retirement for many years of service on the Exmouth in Bloom Committee. She will be 86 next birthday, swims in the sea every day and is always one of the first to arrive at work parties! Jenny you are truly amazing!
Calendars, which are a major fundraiser for us, are still available at Celebrations and Best Books in the Parade, Exmouth (Covid compliant) and at Porky Down butchers in the Magnolia Centre.
They can also be ordered online and by phone for local contactless collection. (see poster below)
