Thelma Hulbert Gallery Honiton
14 July-8 Sept 2012
The winner of this year’s Thelma Hulbert Gallery Open 2012: Equality & Endeavour is Jane Perkins from Kenn, Devon, with her incredible Portrait of Usain Bolt.
Jane has made remarkable portraits of many other famous faces, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and has won the Visitor’s Choice vote in the THG Open twice before.
The winning portrait is in Jane’s now familiar signature style, which uses an eclectic collection of small brightly coloured plastic objects to create an almost three-dimensional life-like effect. Buttons, beads and seeds have also been added to the mix in this winning entry, which can be seen at the gallery until Saturday 8 September.
The Thelma Hulbert Gallery received the usual high standard of entries for this year’s Open and choosing the eventual winners was hard for the judging panel.
As in previous years the public now have their opportunity to vote for their own favourites in The Visitor’s Choice category. The Artist who receives the most votes in this section wins £100, kindly sponsored by Haughty Culture of Honiton High Street.
What happens if illness, injury or just the fact that we all get older, starts to get in the way of how we are able to look after our four legged companions? Many elderly and ill pet owners become worried about the fate of their beloved animals feeling that the only answer is to find them a new home, this is where we can help.
The Cinnamon Trust is the only specialist national charity offering pet care support to the terminally ill and people in their later years. Our volunteers will walk dogs for housebound owners, we’ll foster pets when owners need hospital care, we’ll fetch the cat food, even clean out the bird cage.
We have two dear little Yorkshire Terriers in Dunkeswell whose owner is unable to walk them. We desperately need some additional volunteers in this area, even if you can offer an hour a week to help these lovely dogs it will improve their quality of life and will give the owner peace of mind.
If anyone can help call Sally on 01736 758 707 or via email email@example.com

Mayor Vernon Whitlock, Councillor Stuart Hughes and Andy Pitt, South West Trains Managing Director formally unveiled the £1.4 improvements to Honiton Train Station this week.
The improvements include: improved waiting area, brand new toilets, a new ramp on platform 2, a new retail unit and a new waiting shelter on platform 2.
Andy Pitt, Managing Director for South West Trains said:
“We are pleased to have delivered this significant project with our partners to provide a much improved station for Honiton’s passengers. It is great to see these new facilities.
“Passengers in Honiton rely on rail for over 328 thousand journeys every year, reflecting its importance to the community and local economy.
“I am sure local residents will take pride in the new look of their train station for years to come."
Honiton's new Mayor was "made" on 6th June 2011 at the traditional "Mayor Making" ceremony. The ceremony dates back to 1847.
Mayor Veron Whitlock has taken over the the very popular and much loved Peter Fleming.
At the ceremonty Mayor Whitlock said:
“I think that every year previous mayors, myself included, have said that it will be a challenging year for the town council.
“This year will be no exception. But the town is represented by good councillors who will be working hard for Honiton. Looking at the coming year there will be reductions in funding and we are probably going to see quite a bit more.
“We need to be working closer with the district and county councils to address those to the benefit of the people of Honiton.”
The very popular new Deputy Mayor Councillor D Foster was also appointed.

Our website www.tripcta.org covers all of our services and gives a fuller explanation of what we do.
When we first started Sound Out in April 2005 we didn’t know if anyone would come to our inaugural meeting, In fact we had eight people turn up, some are still with us! We both have had hearing problem for many years. We found that our social life had become virtually non-existent and when we looked for a hearing support group, found none.
We meet once a month always on the third Tuesday morning, and have speakers, outings, quizzes and finger spelling games, also a Birthday card scheme, a Christmas Tea and about twenty members. Many friendships have sprung up over a cuppa. The Methodist Church is an ideal venue for us because it has a good loop system, so everyone can hear what’s going on. There is full disabled access for people with physical disabilities. There is limited adjacent parking.
Our routine is that we get there around 9.30am to set up the room and test the loop system and look out for our guest speaker (we generally give a small gift to those who don’t charge) we have a member who takes care of the refreshments, we offer decaffeinated and ordinary Teas & Coffees for those who have tinnitus and find this beneficial. We still only charge 50p for this. The biscuits are set out on plates with dollies on to make it more of an occasion. At Easter and Christmas we serve appropriate refreshments. (Easter biscuits and mince pies etc.) We have a member who sends Birthday cards; from Sound Out to every member, also every member gets a small gift and card at Christmas these have been funded by Pat and Chris and not from the clubs resources. We have a Christmas tea every year which in recent years we have been able to pay for from funds. We get unsolicited donation most years which helps provide these little extras.
The local newspaper (Midweek Herald) is very helpful in advertising events and activities the group has. Also the local library, Honiton Council Office the Sensory Department of Social Services, as well as the Royal Devon & Exeter Audiology unit steer people who could benefit towards Sound Out. We were also asked to take part in consultation into advances in their services. We have had mentions in the past in Devon link magazine, and Positive Devon Living a new magazine for people with disabilities.
