A COUPLE from Wellington has launched a day service for older people called the 'Young At Heart Club'.

Created by Lloyd and Diana Yorke, it aims to give older people a place to make friends and engage in fun and stimulating activities.

The pair, who have experience managing a day care centre in Mid Devon, set up the not-for-profit group to tackle feelings of loneliness and isolation and boost youthfulness among the older community.

The Yorkes would like to attract elderly people from Wellington, Cullompton and Tiverton, and give carers some respite.
