This will be followed by a Hospiscare supper evening in the Mackarness Hall.

On Sunday, June 3, “bring your own” picnic and join the fun at Allhallows field for Honiton’s Big Lunch, which is being co-ordinated by local residents and Honiton Rugby Club.

There will also be a Evensong at St Paul’s Church.

The fun continues into Monday when Honiton Running Club will be organising sports events for children at Allhallows field.

On Tuesday, June 5, there will be an afternoon band concert and picnic at the Millennium Green.
