LIVE: Torbay Mayor's Forum
TORBAY Mayor Gordon Oliver welcomed more than 100 people to his Mayor's Forum event this evening.
Among the ideas for the regeneration of Torbay there was also some good-natured banter about the new palm tree at the gateway to Torquay.
Many people have said that the new palm tree at the Kerswell Gardens roundabout resembles a pineapple more than a palm tree.
One wag even tied an inflatable model of the children's TV character Spongebob Squarepants to the tree at the weekend.
Cllr Mike Morey asked the Forum tonight if Torbay should take the initiative and twin with Bikini Bottom, the fictional town in which Spongebob lives.
