Some years ago, the VGS put together an initiative to promote biodiversity:

Biodiversity Group – Vision Group for Sidmouth


One of the projects was to promote wildflower seeds locally:

Futures Forum: New Biodiversity Group in Sidmouth


Another was to put together a beach garden, together with Sidmouth in Bloom:

The Sidmouth Beach Garden

The Sidmouth Beach Garden “Ocean Scene”

Has anyone got an old rowing boat to donate? – Vision Group for Sidmouth


The VGS is now part of a new group founded in spring 2020

– together with the Science Festival, the Arboretum and the environment committee of the Town Council:

The Group has its own website and Facebook pages:
