Market is an asset to Honiton

MY home overlooks a car park in the centre of Honiton. I have noticed that it is always full on market days and practically empty at other times of the week. I don't know how shopkeepers can say that the market is a deterrent to people coming into town. J

You (the traders who made the comments) have no idea, it seems, what our market is about. I, as a person who lives in Honiton, and shops on the stalls, think they are great. My husband has been very ill and I always get only kindness from stallholders, and they ask me if they can do anything to help me and my husband. As for Terry Farebrother - all I can say about him is: "Keep up the good work, Terry!" And, as for all the stall-holders: "Stand tall and we think you are great! And thank you for your great service!"Mrs C Gilson 36a Orchard WayHoniton
