Homebase in Honiton shows its support.
Support for the Honiton Christmas Lights Appeal is growing brighter.
Homebase in Honiton has agreed to provide around 120 artificial trees at a reduced price to Go Festive - the Honiton Christmas Lights Committee - to decorate the town this December.
Store manager Simon Sheldrake was pleased to support the appeal and said: “We are always happy to help.”
The appeal is being supported by the Midweek Herald and officially launched last week.

The Go Festive committee added: “We want to thank Homebase for its support, which means a lot to us. For a company of this size, which is not based on the high street, to help make High Street look good is fantastic.
“We would like to encourage businesses to come forward - we need your support and the support of everyone.”
