Sol Energies, which has been operating in Exeter Road since February 2018, has moved into the former chapel of rest at the Budleigh Health and Wellbeing Hub.

Owned by couple Oliver Jenkins and Bex Hill, both 30 years old, the business offers massage, reflexology, meditation and reiki healing.

Mr Jenkins, who was a builder prior to becoming a therapist, said the chance to expand into Budleigh was too good to turn down.

He said: "A lot of our clients do come from Budleigh so it was a major opportunity to work with the hub that fell into our laps."

He revealed the company will be supporting a social media group which aims to help poverty-stricken families in Exmouth as part of a Christmas promotion.

Sol Energies will be donating £5 from every gift voucher sold to Exmouth Friends in Need which gives food to those who cannot afford by selling items for food donations in lieu of payment.
