Volunteers in Ilfracombe are keen to show how much they love their town after forming a new group. The Ilfracombe Green Team plans to tackle areas hit by district and county council cuts such as cutting the roadside verges and clearing public places. It comes as the North Devon Gazette launches its Love North Devon campaign, with a special Love logo for each town and village. With support from Ilfracombe Town Council, the Green Team has been set up by local gardener and town councillor Steve Trebble. Thanks to £6,000 in national funding from the Town and Parish (TAP) Fund the group has been able to buy a ride-on tractor mower to get to any part of the town and a large stock of hand tools. We are recruiting volunteers from the community to look after their own areas, with our backing, he said. We will also be looking for sponsorship from anybody that wants to contribute to the town. As a gardener, my eyes are always drawn to areas of Ilfracombe I feel let the town down. We want to attract tourists and when they come they dont want to see five-foot grass growing at Mullacott. Councillors Noel Grummitt, Dan Turton and Leo Aston are on the group as representatives of each council ward in the town. The first project will be to work on the raised beds at Wilder Road car park following a request by Ilfracombe in Bloom.
