Promoting the quality of life in the St David's area of Exeter

NEW PART-TIME PROJECT WORKER post in St David's. Thanks to Postcode Local Trust funding, Exeter Community Centre is creating wooden raised-bed vegetable 'allotments' on tarmac (!) for the children of the nearby Primary School and retired local residents. Starting in March, the project is based on 1.5 days a week. Download full details (closing date for applications is 19th Feb 2018).

St David's Village was the only main entry from Exeter in Britain in Bloom SW this year and was judged on the 19th July. Volunteers have been helped in their preparations by Exeter City Council's cheerful team who have tackled graffiti, fly-posting and overgrown shrubberies with great gusto - and we greatly appreciate all their hard work.

The St David's Village portfolio was given to the judges as a reference document prior to their judging tour. Download here

The results of judging will be announced at the Awards at the Imperial Hotel in Torquay on 5 October with presentations by Julian Fellowes and Lady Fellowes (SW in Bloom Patrons). After the Awards there will be an opportunity for St David's volunteers to discuss our entry with judges Steve Clampin (Bristol City Council) and Graham Price (Teignbridge Council).

A huge 'thank you' to the team (some shown above) for the excellent haul of rubbish on 5th March and 18th June - Our next litter busting day is now Tuesday July 18th @ 4pm - meet at the Community Centre, St David's Hill - New litter busters welcome !

Have you spotted a restored and decorated period lamp-post in St David's ? The idea of the lamp-post trail started because our historic cast-iron lamp-posts were under threat and some were being removed. They were in a shocking state of neglect. Residents of St David's and St James wanted to preserve them and secured funding for their restoration. the full story

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race."
