Honiton Tow Council welcomed two new councillors to its meeting earlier this week.

Martyn Linsdell and Daniel Jefferson joined fellow councillors at the Beehive on Monday.

Speaking after the meeting, Cllr Linsdell said: “I was born in Honiton hospital, and live and work in the town. Honiton is, and will always be, my home.

“I have reached the conclusion it’s all too easy to grumble from the outside about town affairs, and that by joining the council I can set about proactively making a positive difference.

“I am coming at this as a complete layman, and there will undoubtedly be a steep learning curve. Going forward I’m looking forward to helping make the council structure and processes more accessible and as inclusive as possible for the people of the town.”

It was announced at Monday’s meeting that Ken Hopkins had resigned from the council.

Mayor and council chairman John Zarczynski thanked Mr Hopkins for this service.
