Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

In a year unlike any other, we wanted to send our festive greetings to you, along with a virtual Christmas present.

Thank you everyone who stepped up and helped our community this year, especially those who’ve volunteered through the Torbay Community Helpline, which has now helped more than 4,000 people, and received in excess of 15,000 calls.

Please note, for the next two weeks (weeks commencing 21st & 28th) Torbay Community Helpline will only be open 10am-2pm, Monday-Thursday, reverting to previous hours from 4th Jan 2021 and onwards.

As ever, one call, that’s all – 01803 446022 or use

To make sure you have everything you need for this festive season, we’ve prepared a page on our website with a list of festive Torbay events & activities, information on open hours for local services, and current guidance on Covid-19 restrictions & measures.

We did indeed mention a virtual gift. Our friends at the The Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust have prepared a 360° immersive video of familiar places from around South Devon for you to enjoy, when experiencing the real thing can be a lot harder or downright impossible for many Torbay residents.

To view the immersive video, go to:
