Seaton Library has been selected as a finalist in RGB Building Supplies’ Well Built Community Fund – and it is now down to a public vote to see if it’s chosen to receive £1,000 worth of building materials.
The Friends of Seaton Library hope to use the donation of materials to transform an area at the back of the building into a wildlife garden for the local community to sit and read or observe nature.
Those that don’t have their own green space would be invited to enjoy the pleasures of gardening and people with disabilities would be able to use the area as a sensory garden.
Seaton Library is up against Muddy Boots Pre-School, which will be located in Northam, and the Friends of Combe Martin Library.
Alby Cruse, Branch Manager at RGB Exmouth, said: “Giving the public the opportunity to choose the recipient of our Well Built Community Fund is something we launched last year and it has proven extremely popular.
“As the local branch to Seaton Library we are encouraging people in the area to get involved and vote for them.”
Votes can be cast by visiting the Exmouth RGB branch during opening hours and placing a chip in the relevant box, by clicking the chosen group on the poll that will be at the top of RGB’s Facebook page or by emailing RGB@pmwcom.co.uk and putting the name of the group being voted for in the subject line.
The poll will take place between Monday 27th March and midnight on Sunday 9th April. Votes cast outside these dates will not be counted. Only one vote per person via each method of voting will be counted.
The winner of the £1,000 worth of building materials will be the group that receives the most votes.
