This week we take a look back through the Herald archives to see what was making the news ten years ago.

Honiton Primary School was no exception to this tradition as the pupils brought to school their goods.

On Sunday, October 10, 2010, Girl Guides and Brownies joined in with the seasonal tradition and marched to a harvest service at Honiton Baptist Church, their arms laden with fresh produce.

Three Honiton youngsters were given a special 'thank you' for their help improving the Glen by the Honiton Town Council this week. Two of the girls Sapphire Jones and Tanya Muggeridge are pictured with mayor Peter Fleming and councillor Alf Boom at the presentations.
