We encourage all sections of the community to work with Exmouth in Bloom to create a better environment for us all. If you would like to become a Volunteer please email us through the Contact tab above.
We welcome volunteers, who join us when they are available, at our twice monthly gardening work parties and interim pop-up work parties when needed. We also welcome volunteers who make an incredible contribution by making preserves, craft items, grow on plants, bake cakes or serve on our fundraising stalls. They all enjoy the social and mental well-being benefits of being part of Exmouth in Bloom.
Every one of our volunteers is valued and appreciated as part of the Exmouth in Bloom Team.
Groups we have worked with during the past few years include:
- Exmouth Tidy Group, Plastic Free Exmouth, Litter Blitzers Exmouth, who all keep the public informed about reducing litter in and around the town and seafront areas. They also organised litter picks.
- Children from local Primary and Nursery schools who helped with planting our boats and who are involved with other gardening-related projects with us
- Members of Gateway Club, adults with learning disabilities, helped with planting at Haldon House surgery
- Abbeyfield Residential Home who assisted with planting.
- Local gardeners who work in their own community on projects and enter the Local Gardening Competition. Some have also entered the RHS Britain in Bloom It’s Your Neighbourhood competition.
- Local Brownies and Rainbows who take part in the South West in Bloom, themed painting competition each year. The Brownies and Rainbows also help with planting on the Railway Station platform each year.
