Our iconic seafront wishing well has existed in its current location adjacent to Harbour View Cafe for over 60 years, quietly withstanding the ravages of weather whilst collecting people's wishes and kind donations on behalf of the Rotary Club of Exmouth who in turn distribute the money to countless local good causes.
Last summer a refurbishment project was started with the kind and generous help of many local suppliers and business organisations that all were pleased to contribute to this community project. The timber and fixings for this project were kindly gifted by Jewsons, the design and construction of all of the joinery elements was undertaken by NHS New Leaf (a rehabilitation facility based at Exminster), all paints and consumables were gifted to Rotary by Wilsons Paints, and Devon Signs designed and provided the sign writing. There are numerous others who also helped in many ways, and on behalf of the Rotary Club of Exmouth we thank them all for their kindness.
So, next time you are passing the Well, flip a coin, make a wish and turn the handle, we hope your wish comes true but we definitely know that your donation will improve the lives of others.
