Peter Halse summarised the council's year at a town meeting.
Honiton mayor Peter Halse has praised council staff for their ‘hard work and dedication’ in his annual report.
Mr Halse summarised the council’s year at a town meeting held earlier this week.
He also briefly discussed The Beehive, Honiton’s community complex, which has been a subject of controversy in recent months.
Mr Halse said: “[The complex] has been in operation for just over 12 months and I would like to thank all the directors of the company who will be managing the Beehive and the many volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure that a variety of activities and events take place. I have every confidence in the directors and I am positive they will continue to do a wonderful job of ensuring these facilities are available for all members of the community.”
Mr Halse extended his thanks to several councillors, including those stepping down from their posts - Vivienne Ash, Nick Cornwell, Gary Elliot, Nick Boggon and Sharon Pavey.
He also highlighted the work that Honiton’s town crier, Dave Retter, does for the community of Honiton.
“He is a real credit to the town, acting as an ambassador for Honiton throughout the country,” Mr Halse added.
