The twice yearly Business Dinner events, organized by the Torbay Business Forum, was a resounding success with Jim Parker, former editor of the Herald Express, talking about ‘Torbay Together’ at the Grand Hotel in Torquay.

As Steve Reynolds, Chair of TBF said ; “ It was a fantastic evening – great food, great atmosphere and most importantly lovely to have over 120 local business people all networking together, to make the Bay a more prosperous place.”

“The Forum have held these events for over 7 years now, in the spring and autumn. As the Forum’s aim is ‘Bringing Businesses Together’, these evening meetings are fun, informative and great for networking.  We are grateful to headline sponsors, newly branded Wollens for their support, as well as Bays Brewery and the Grand Hotel.  We also raised a whopping £600 for Rowcroft Hospice in a ‘Heads and Tails event’.
