FOLLOWING THIS week's news that Exmouth's Rolle College is near to being secured for the community, more details of the epic battle have emerged in the local press. And it appears that part of the site – which was controversially closed in 2009 – may be in use as early as the autumn. 

Hugo Swire, MP for East Devon, says he is delighted. "It is fantastic news," he told the Exmouth Journal. "This is an example of how a community can come together and insist on retaining a facility for the good of the community as a whole."

Meanwhile, Roy Pryke, chairman of Rolle Exmouth Ltd, is celebrating a triumphant win.

"We've got what we set out to do," he told the Exeter Express and Echo. "...We now have three years to make it into a success story for Exmouth."

Mr Pryke also indicated to the Express and Echo that parts of the site could be in use as early as this autumn after initial refurbishments have taken place.

    Ron is absolutely right – if we want positive change for Exmouth, it's up to us to make it happen! We hear so much about apathy and negativity in the town, but the Rolle campaigners have shown what can be achieved with determination and persistence. Can we rise to the challenge and work towards a brighter future for our community?

    Well done to everyone concerned with the Rolle College project.

    Now lets raise support and put on local events and concerts on to raise money for the venture . Getting the deal was the easy bit, now the harder work begins.

    And by the by, we seem to be winning this one - so lets also keep on about the Strand to make sure the plexiglass monstrosity is never built!
