A HONITON businessman has planted a tree in memory of the town's former mayor, Chris Tratt, who died suddenly last year.

Jean-Baptiste Sancey-Denton, of The Railway Inn, planted a liquid amber tree at the Glen.

Honiton Town Council has also planted a tree at the beauty spot in memory of the late Councillor Tratt.

Mr Sancey-Denton said he was proud of the community work that Councillor Tratt had carried out in Honiton and that he felt privileged to plant a tree in his memory.

He hopes that other business owners in the town will follow his example and plant more trees at the Glen as part of an on-going regeneration project led by the town council.

Heathpark-based Nu-Heat have already contributed to the project, which has attracted grant funding.
