Green-fingered volunteers from 1st Honiton Scouts have been given a helping hand to brighten up a corner of the town.
The group started looking after the planters in Dowell Street earlier this year and have now got the support of Homebase, who have supplied bags of compost, shurbs, bedding plants and gardening tools for the project.
The scouts and beavers have been busy planting the collection of beautiful flowers and plants.
Staff from Homebase, service manager Paul Proctor, Mark Lawson, Craig Sluman, and Sally Spreadbury, as well as the Mayor of Honiton, Councillor David Foster, and Diddy the mayor’s bear came out to support the scouts.
1st Honiton Scouts says it is overwhelmed by the support shown by Homebase and is looking forward to working with them.
The store in Honiton has expressed an interest in providing ongoing support for the project by supplying more seasonal bedding plants.
