Covid won't stand in the way of Torbay celebrating the true meaning of Easter this year.
Christians Together in Torquay are again bringing Jesus’ message of Hope to the town this Easter.
Covid restrictions mean that many of their usual Easter events cannot happen.
But the message of hope and joy is still being expressed in other ways.
Local artist Becky Bettesworth has produced a Easter Hope poster which will be appearing all around Torquay.
And Geoff Ward - the Bay's famous Sandman with his sand sculptures - is creating an Easter message on Torre Abbey Sands.
Covid restrictions mean that the Christians cannot conduct their usual Walk of Witness on Good Friday. However, people are being invited to make their own arrangements to walk singly or in groups of no more than six between the churches of the town, pausing for prayer outside each one..
