Honiton: Good support for Christmas tree plan
Traders rally to support cost-saving festive lights scheme.
TWO thirds of businesses in Honiton town centre have already signed up to a new Christmas lighting scheme.
Instead of having lights on lampposts, the town will be adorned with up to 100 individually lit Christmas trees.
The cost-saving initiative is being jointly piloted by Honiton Town Council and Honiton and District Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“The idea is going down really well,” Colin Wright, the chairman of the chamber, told a meeting last week.
