Torbay celebrates and rewards its customer service stars
CUSTOMER service heroes of Torbay have been recognised for their commitment and hard work.
As part of National Customer Services Week Torbay Council along with the Police, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service and the Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care NHS Trust, took part in a campaign to celebrate good practice and dedication.
