Exmouth's Rolle Centre

























Some Budleigh residents still had the voice of Exmouth's Town Crier Roger Bourgein ringing in their ears, days after he made his proclamation about free admission to Fairlynch Museum on 1 June.

There is no charge for the Town Crier's services but a donation to the Mayor of Exmouth's chosen charity is appreciated.

Roger's efforts on Fairlynch's behalf were deeply appreciated by Friends of the Museum. A letter conveying our thanks will be sent to the Mayor, Councillor John Humphreys, together with a cheque made out to Rolle Exmouth Ltd.

As a cultural institution benefiting the local community, Fairlynch Museum shares many of the values which make The Rolle Centre a potentially important part of Exmouth's economic and cultural regeneration.

Earlier this year, at a meeting attended by hundreds of local residents, leading figures in East Devon education pledged support for a scheme to revive the Douglas Avenue site as a learning hub for the area.

David Henley, principal and chief executive of Bicton College, Richard Atkins, principal of Exeter College and Tony Alexander, principal of Exmouth Community College all declared their willingness to take part in further discussions on how their colleges could be involved in running courses from the Centre.
