THE residents of Honiton have waited long enough for a modern, purpose-built community centre and deserve a building that will meet their needs.That is what Councillor Sharon Holloway said last week, when she outlined why, in her opinion, Honiton Town Council has an "obligation" to deliver the centre."It may not be perfect, but it will serve needs," she said, referring to the scaled down proposal adopted by the councillors. She said Honiton had been identified as a town with a high number of households with single occupiers and where isolation and depression had been highlighted."These people need a place to meet and activities provided in a building that will meet their needs," Councillor Holloway added.Councillor Liz Tirard said a hall with proper access and modern facilities was vital, now that Honiton is 'home' to SeeAbility's Windmill Court and as more elderly people with mobility move to the town.
