Honiton sports hub takes another step forward

Association formed to manage complex

Project leaders say they are certain the move is a step forward.

The association is likely to manage proposed new sports facilities at Tower Cross.

Honiton Development Trust will hold a lease to the site.

Dr Jeremy Gibson, chairman of Active Honiton, told the Midweek Herald that a meeting was held last Friday to discuss the formation of an association.

“It will be a recognised body and capable of receiving gift aid,” he said.

“It will also have certain tax benefits.”

The association will be open to all.

Dr Gibson added: “The association will be able to have a trading arm, meaning profits are fed back in to support its work.

“I genuinely think we are on the move.”
