Our Year 10 citizenship class has been looking at the economy and the importance of private and public sectors within the community. We hope that the recently closed Woolworths will not be changed into yet another supermarket. Maybe, as an alternative, a new retail outlook focussed for the younger person, such as New Look or Games Station, could be a possibility. We, as a consumer group, do have influence, and through a business that focuses on the teenage market, more money could be reinvested in the town. We realise that teenagers have been getting a bad reputation nationally, and a bit locally, but troublemakers remain a small minority. It would be great if we could all (and not just we students) as a community make decisions for the good of the town. Year 10 Citizenship Group Honiton Community College
