Honiton: Councillor resigns from six committees

Alf Boom led regeneration work at The Glen beauty spot.

One of Honiton Town Council’s hardest working members has resigned from six committees and outside bodies.

It is understood that Councillor Alf Boom has cut down his workload for health reasons.

He has stood down from The Glen working group, which he led.

Without his enthusiastic input, regeneration work at the beauty spot may never have taken place.

Councillor Boom’s has also resigned from the town council’s planning committee, town centre advisory committee, East Devon Citizens’ Advice Centre, Honiton Locality Planning Team and the Thelma Hulbert Gallery Advisory Committee.

Honiton Town Council will formally note the resignations at a meeting next week.
