Branch History

Our 1st branch opened on October 23rd 1967 in a tiny terraced house in Tuly Street, Barnstaple, taking 1,000 distress calls a year.

We now take over 12,000 calls and answer approximately 1,400 emails a year.

Growth has been a constant thread in our history and, when in 1975 we had to vacate 11 Tuly Street, we were privileged indeed to acquire our own premises at 2 Summerland Street, Barnstaple for £7,500 and which is our present address.
