PRIOR to the opening of TRIP in Honiton, life was very difficult for the frail and elderly people in Honiton.I can remember seeing those people struggle to walk up the hill, past the railway station, en route to the doctor's surgery or hospital, At times, because of adverse weather conditions, I believe people were unable to keep their medical appointments.When TRIP opened, life changed completely for them. The TRIP office is open in New Street on five days of the week. The staff are most polite and obliging and will do everything in their power to meet with your requirements, all at a very minimum cost.I feel we should do everything within our means to help to keep TRIP in operation.Without TRIP, life would be very difficult for the elderly people in Honiton and district.MR J O'BRIENHoniton
