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.
