Honiton held its ever-popular Charter Day at the weekend - drawing in crowds of visitors.

Visitors were treated to fun dancing sessions courtesy of LeRoc Modern Jive, The Tudor Dance Group and Westernspirit Line Dancing, while dog owners showed off their pets in a family dog show.

Honiton deputy mayor Jackie Wadsworth said the day was ‘great fun’, adding: “There were a lot of people around, who all seemed to be enjoying the stalls and entertainment on offer.”

Visitors also got to experience the fun of bell ringing and youngsters dressed to impress in the town crier’s junior town crier contest.

A popular attraction on the day was a classic car rally, put on by Honiton Lions Club.

Lion Bob Francis said: “We had a blinder - we raised more than £1,000 for charity. Thanks to everyone who attended and donated on the day.

“It’s great to see how Honiton has realised such a great event and that it brings a lot to the town.

“This year has been the best one so far, and we as a club hope to build on this for future events.”
