Honiton poet Iris J Danning has penned some verses to welcome frozen food chain Iceland back to the town. Pensioner Mrs Danning says she was unable to purchase frozen onion for stews in Honiton for the three years Iceland was absent from the town centre.

“I wrote the poem to welcome Iceland back,” she said.

“I definitely think Iceland will be an asset to Honiton.”

Her poem was handed to Iceland manager Belinda Bodley on the store’s opening day, April 16.

Mrs Danning’s poem starts:

It’s just over three years since you moved away

We’ve all been looking forward to this big day

My fridge is empty, my freezer is bare

So I’m going to stock up with goodies to put in there.

    If she were to write it in ox blood on handmade Japanese paper it might pass muster as a senior project at a major university.
