EFFORTS to regenerate the Glen in Honiton have resulted in recognition from East Devon District Council. It has presented Councillor Alfred Boom, who has led the project, and Councillor Vernon Whitlock, the Mayor of Honiton, with a certificate - to mark the excellent progress made by Honiton Town Council. A cheque for £150 was also presented. Addressing a council meeting in Honiton two weeks ago, Councillor Boom revealed that developer Taylor Wimpey has donated land for an extension to the beauty spot. Two local companies are currently working on the regeneration initiative, thanks to grants from Breathing Spaces and the town council. A map, general leaflet about the Glen and signage form part of their remit. Young people are actively engaged in the project. Honiton Community College students, those who use Honiton Young People's Centre and members of other youth organisations in the town are actively working on specific initiatives at the Glen. Voluntary work at the Glen is open to all and a meeting to discuss this and other developments will take place tonight (Wednesday, January 30) in the Senior Citizens' Centre at 7pm. All welcome.
