10.03.23: ‘Friends of Exmouth in Bloom 2023’ is launched with a Coffee morning at Roswell Court

We gathered at Roswell Court on Friday  to host a coffee morning to launched the  Friends of Exmouth in Bloom 2023 campaign and what a lovely morning it was.

You can join ‘Friends’ in support of Exmouth in Bloom for as little as £5 p.a. and you will receive news letters three times a year, to update you with our work.

The Roswell residents came to the lounge for their morning coffee to be greeted by a trolley filled with cakes and fancies and were served and chatted to by Bloom volunteers. The Mayor Steve Gazzard and Town Crier Roger Bourgein joined us  and spoke, praising the work of Exmouth In Bloom and EiB  Chairman Gerry Bassett explained a little about the Friends scheme and thanked Roswell Court residents for their support. We know that the residents enjoy our preserves so we also took a small stall  which Sandie Cox, our Friends Co-ordinator, manned.  Many of the residents are long -standing ‘Friends’ but we had two more join today and several donations were made in appreciation of our work.

Many thanks go to everyone who attended this delightful event.

‘Friends’ forms can be downloaded from the Friends of Exmouth in Bloom page on the ‘Get Involved’ tab at the top of this page.
