A year ago the charity that works with older people moved into new and larger premises in Rolle Street.

The move has allowed the charity to offer a wider range of activities for clients to enjoy.

“We moved in a year ago and we had a change of CEO, and I’ve taken over,” said Gill Smith, CEO of Exmouth Age Concern. “We’re doing lots of wonderful things – Scrabble, yoga, book swap, puzzle corner. It’s a really lovely environment for people, a really good vibe going on.”

To celebrate their first birthday in their new premises at 1 Rolle Street, staff and volunteers were treated to cake and more.

“During the day, lots of people came in and out,” said Gill. “We had about 50 or 60 come through, have a mince pie, piece of cake.”
