Inspired by the interest and street camerarderie when gardening during the pandemic last year, the residents of Waverley Road Exmouth, had the brilliant idea of organising their own gardening competition, complete with a trophy for the winning entry.
The organisers, friends and neighbours, Penny (see photo below) and Lara, contacted Exmouth in Bloom for ‘bit of advice’ and to ask if there might be someone able to judge their Competition. Exmouth in Bloom not only jumped at the chance but also suggested that as well as entering individual categories, the road could enter into the ‘Community Effort’ section in the EiB Local Gardening Competition.
At the recent launch of the Exmouth in Bloom Competition at Kings Garden and Leisure, Penny got a real boost and support from the Town Crier, Exmouth’s Mayor and from owner Richard King, for the ‘Great Waverley Road Garden Competition’.
More than 20 houses in the road have already entered and the list is growing!
What a great idea. Well done Waverley Road!
