Cheerful messages designed to put smiles on people’s faces are appearing on pavements across the Bay.

The Torbay Chalk Trail follows on from the Christmas Trail and the Sunflower Trail which were all designed to cheer people up during lockdown.

Torbay Community Development Trust’s community builders are coordinating the initiative, which is seeing jokes, messages and drawings popping up - in messages which disappear after rain.

Tara Acton, Community Builder for Chelston, Livermead and Cockington, has set up a Facebook page to coordinate display pictures and so far more than 200 people have signed up.
