Local Chambers of Commerce for TQ2 5NX. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Open House Torbay Estate Agents

42 Grosvenor Ave, Torquay TQ2 7JY, UK – 01803 659000

Open House Torquay helped me to sell my property within 3 weeks. Selling was so cheap i couldn't believe it. I do not understand why people pay so much to these high street agents when you can get same, personalise service with local agents like Open house and cost you so less. They even promise minimum sale fees guarantee. Until you don't try it you will never know how much you can save. I only paid £450 inclusive VAT for my sale in comparison to high street agent, they were charging me over £5000 and i struggled to obtain feed back from them -what a big difference now ! I am using all this savings to buy new wooden flooring and furniture for my new house. Thanks you Open House Torquay. Mr & Mrs Colin Smith

Wonderful care and attention

Torbay Hospital

Lowes Bridge, Torquay TQ2 7AA, UK – 01803 614567

Why cant I give 6 out of 5 stars? The service I am currently experiencing from my hospital bed in Chest Pain ward (cardiology) is second to none. The cleaners, the caterers, the nurses, doctors and consultants are all so perfect. I am treated with love and care by all levels of staff and feel so relaxed knowing that such excellence of expertise surrounds me. I could not be in a safer place. It annoys me that some people run the NHS down. I think they all deserve a pay rise. Tell this to the administrators and accountants and they will have a heart attack. Then they too will be admitted, and then they too would agree that a pay rise is in order when they experience first hand what I am experiencing now!!

first rate absolutely brilliant go out of their way to make your stay welcoming my thanks go them .I was in the simpson ward

"ALL SAINTS" From Manor Road the avenue of mature 'chestnut trees' runs along Carey Park, Carey Avenue, to the tall sky bound spire of "ALL SAINTS CHURCH". It is a pleasant walk, as the trees are now in full leaf, with singing birds to accompany you. "ALL SAINTS", has its similarities with other churches in the area, but also has a variety of differences. No two churches are ever the same. As, no two days are ever the same....... Enjoy the avenues of trees, the flowers, the wild animals, wild birds, the landscapes, the sun rises and sunsets, the people you love, the church architecture, the sea, for it is all there for you to enjoy, while you are here. For future generations to enjoy, when you are not....................................
