Torrington groups get together
ORGANISATIONS in Torrington had one of their biggest get-togethers when 75 people representing 45 groups met at the Torridge Vale Social Club for the 13th biannual meeting of Torrington Together.
This informal group was set up in 2005 with the aim of bringing together as many of the town’s clubs and societies as possible, to share news, ambitions, plans and problems.
It also provides an opportunity for people to speak to the assembled company and to ‘network.’
Torrington Together is supported by the town council, who undertake the administration, and by the Community Development Trust.
Eight main speakers gave talks on subjects including Taw and Torridge Caring, the North Devon Biosphere Reserve and Torrington Commons,Torrington Golf Club, Torrington Fire Service, Torridgeside Youth Football Club, The Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme, Torrington Cavaliers’ plans for the future and the newly formed Torrington Community Foodbank.
