OLDER people will be able to relax in Lyngford Park, Taunton, thanks to the kind thoughts of Paul Hersey.

Mr Hersey, who has lived in the town for 46 years, popped into Priorswood Community Centre, to suggest benches could be put in the park.

Centre manager Lesley Thomas then contacted the district council and was awarded cash from the unparished area kitty to pay for three benches.
