Exmouth firm AJ's Taxis continued its annual tradition of organising the three-course feast, including drinks, for their senior customers.

The meal was prepared at Exmouth Rugby Club by the staff at The Old Warehouse, in The Strand.

AJ's Taxis provided free transports to and from the rugby club with around 70 pensioners sitting down for the meal.

Exmouth mayor Steve Gazzard also attended.

Cllr Gazzard paid tribute to the taxi firm, which has been organising the annual meal for nearly 20 years.

He said: "It was a really amazing event.

"It's just amazing what they do for the community and everyone had a really fantastic time."

After the three-course Christmas meal, entertainment was provided by singer Ian Boyd.
