Rate cut was a nice surprise

I was pleasantly surprised when I went to Exmouth Leisure Centre on September 1, to find that membership costs for the over 60s have been reduced.

This is a welcome surprise, which Age Concern Exmouth and District likes to learn for a client group which is the largest in East Devon.

I should also like to express appreciation to Peter Binks (manager) and his excellent staff who I have noticed give much individual care and support to the over 50s (the age that Age Concern starts from).

I hope that other benefits, such as totally free swimming for the over 60s, could soon become a reality for East Devon. This group are particularly affected by the recession with rising food (and other) costs, as well as low interest rates on savings.
