Chairman calls for public to fund-raise.

Honiton Players support the Mayor and Honiton Town Council fully in their commitment to build a community centre in Honiton.

There is no entertainment in Honiton, because there is neither a theatre nor a cinema.

With a proper theatre, this company could present two full length plays a year, invite companies to visit and have a competition for one act plays for two or more players. Without a theatre, we have no home.

The theatre could be used as a cinema to give local people, especially older ones, a chance to go out of doors to see films with their friends at a time to suit themselves. Add a cafe and the entertainment centre is complete.

If people volunteer and other people support their money-raising efforts, the town council can reduce the amount of council tax needed.
