One of Honiton's longest-running clubs for senior citizens has folded.
Honiton Old Age Pensioners' Association, which met at the Senior Citizens' Centre, is to be wound up following a decline in membership and increased costs for guest speakers.
Honitonian Margaret Robson, 83, was the association's chairman and secretary.
She told the Herald: "We have decided to close.
"There will be a special meeting on September 15 to decide what to do with the association's money.
"Each member has received a personal letter, informing them of the meeting."

Honiton Old Age Pensioners' Association was founded over 30 years ago.
For several years it was run by decorated war hero and honoured citizen Tom Crispin, who is a stalwart regular at the Senior Citizens' Centre. Mrs Robson said he had been a hard act to follow.
Remaining members may have one last get-together - a Christmas dinner.
