August’s Social Workparty saw Exmouth in Bloom volunteers out in force dealing with the results of recent downpours followed by warm sunshine, a sure recipe for rampant growth, including weeds. This being peak tourist season in Exmouth we have also turned into Wombles, collecting outrageous amounts of rubbish that have been disposed of in the flower beds.
Our support team, Sharon, Carol and Yvonne met us all later at the Powder Monkey for coffee and catch up.
This monthly occasion is proving to be a great way for everyone to keep in touch. We also had a ‘swap the shirt’ session in an attempt to try to find the right size blue shirt for some of the new volunteers, much to the amusement of onlookers. (Everyone’s modesty was maintained throughout, by the way!).
