An Exmouth day centre welcomed a juggler to entertain schoolchildren and help its elderly clients alike.

The Welcome Centre, which is based at Morgan Court, Rolle Road, invited in Ben Cornish, who provides not only entertainment but also mental training and physical exercise through teaching people how to juggle, improving their coordination.

Welcome Centre manager Angela Boatwright said: “This cognitive stimulation is particularly useful for our elderly clients.

“That, together with the visit from Exeter Road Primary School children – part of our ongoing intergenerational project – provided a great and enjoyable morning at the centre.”

The centre provides a range of activities for the elderly, including crafts, cooking, singing, knitting, and outings.
