Since the 1400s, February 14 has traditionally been the day to say “I love you” to that special someone with a card, a meal or a bouquet of flowers.
However, it can also be a great opportunity to start sharing your passion with other members of our community.
Living in this beautiful bay there is so much to be grateful for but sadly many of our neighbors need help and friendship.
Why not share the love and volunteer to become a walking buddy, phone friend, shopper or dog walker?
Contact Torbay Community Helpline on 01803 446022 or Torbay Together on www.torbaytogether.org.uk for volunteering opportunities.
To find out more about local activities and make new friends, contact your Community Builder on 07931 567 885 or meet for a chat at Coopers Café, 99 Union Street, Monday 14th February, 10am-12pm or join- us at the Torquay Central Club, 226 Union Street, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
