Cyndie Young is starting a new chapter of The Red Hat Society, called the Honiton Honeys.

A new women-only group which aims to ‘empower’ and ‘fill them with confidence’ has been launched in Honiton.

Cyndie Young is starting a new chapter of The Red Hat Society, called the Honiton Honeys.

She told the Herald: “I would like to raise awareness of the chapter and recruit new members.

“We are a disorganisation that is dedicated to growing older with verve and élan, but always well behaved.”

Cyndie first came across the Red Hat Society in 2004, when she was living in New Zealand with her husband.

A Red Hat Queen for ten years now, she was pivotal in starting the successful Blueberry Muffins of Worthing in 2005 – the seventh chapter in England.

Cyndie said: “There are now well over 100 very active chapters in England with neighbouring chapters in Bideford, Exeter, Bristol and Torquay.

“I hope to establish a thriving and active group of motivated women who would enjoy being part of a local, national and international sisterhood and committed to living, loving and laughing. I anticipate theatre trips, delicious meals in lovely restaurants, lots of coffee and cake, fun activities and visits and even cruises and holidays.”

The group’s motto is ‘Live, love, laugh.’

Members have to abide by one rule - they must wear purple with a red hat on their head. Members who are under the age of 50 are classed as a Pink Hatter and wear lavender with a pink hat.

The Red Hat Society exists to empower women and fill them with confidence, pride and enthusiasm for life.

Those interested in joining the Honiton Honeys should visit www.honitonhoneys.weebly.com, or get in touch via the group’s Facebook page.
