A community group based in The Willows area of Torquay welcomed some special guests to discuss a scheme that is all about making friends. 
Cllr Steve Darling, Leader of Torbay Council, and Cllr Swithin Long visited The Willows Community Coffee Morning at The Willow Tree Pub this week. 
Members of the group were most appreciative to the Ward Councillors for The Willows area, taking time to show support for a local voluntary initiative which fosters friendship. A range of issues were discussed over coffee with residents able to speak face to face in a relaxed way with local decision-makers. 
The Coffee group attracts around 20 regulars and is keen to expand further. For anyone interested in joining and being part of the Willows Community team, the group currently meets on Thursdays and details are available at The Willow Tree pub.
