This week we headed down to the Rock Garden Cafe in Torquay town centre.


It was great to see a handful of local Twitter accounts getting involved in the chat.  There were also some questions raised over the hashtag, #BoostTorbayChat.

So let’s strip it to basics.

At the moment we have two hashtags, the #BoostTorbayChat runs every Friday 8-9pm and the normal #BoostTorbay is used throughout the week.  But we’re going to change that.

As of next Friday 21st October, you will be able to join in the chat by simply using #BoostTorbay between 8 – 9pm. We’re also heading down or up to the @ChelstonManor, so if you’re free next Friday and fancy a chat and a bit of informal networking pop along.

Featured Account – @SimonDayUK

Our featured account this week is website designer and co-host radio presenter @SimonDayUK. He is also winner of the Best use of Twitter social media award.

Simon Day has over 19 years of commercial website design experience, starting coding in 1997 when resources for coding were few and far between.  Today he freelances for a range of businesses both large and small.

What’s On

This week we attended the Torquay Chamber of Commerce networking meeting on Wednesday and got wind of a new GoFundMe page opening up.

This year we’ve heard that Torquay Town Centre is going to be without Christmas lights unless we do something about it.  Susie Colley has set up a fantastic campaign to begin getting the ball rolling to secure funding for the implementation of Christmas lights.

Whatever you can donate, large or small please ensure Torquay does’t go without Christmas lights.

They are looking for up to $25K and any you can contribute would be greatly received.

Open the link below to donate whatever you can.
