Last civic engagement for mayor

Mixed emotions for the Mayor of Honiton, Councillor Vernon Whitlock as he prepares to step down.

It was a day of mixed emotions for the outgoing Mayor of Honiton as he conducted his last civic engagement before standing down.

The three times mayor, Councillor Vernon Whitlock, presented prizes to two lucky winners of an Easter bunny hunt during a school assembly at Offwell Church of England Primary School.

Five-year-old Alexis Hancock won a day out at Bicton Gardens and a chocolate bunny and runner up Sofia Corp-Hill, six, was also presented with a chocolate bunny.

The Easter competition helped raise funds for the Beehive community centre.

Honiton Community Centre Association has raised more than �13,000 for the project and has more than 30 fund-raising activities planned.

Anyone wishing to volunteer or make a donation is urged to call John Burgess on 01404 42341.
