FRIENDS and colleagues of a former Honiton taxi driver paid tribute to him at the weekend - by staging a fund-raising slot racing event.
Dave Picknell, who worked for Sparky's taxi firm, died last April.
He was a slot racing enthusiast and a former committee member of Honiton St John Ambulance.
So, it was fitting that the event was staged in the St John Hall.
