Bob and Donna Myres met in 1996, when volunteering at the Torbay Hospital Radio charity, where they still broadcast to patients on a Monday evening.

In 2012 they formed the Torbay Times as a community newspaper to improve the publicity for voluntary organisations in Torbay.

Waitrose was the first large store in Torbay to sell their paper and others followed. They now have a steady circulation in the Bay and a large advertisement on a local bus.

They reached their 50th addition this month with regular columnists like our ACE member – Uncle Tom.

Dr Wollaston, the Totnes Member of Parliament, invited them to visit the Houses of Parliament and a reception, at Number Ten, for journalists. They soon discovered that their newspaper was the only one present without a bias.

They feature controversial issues, without a biased view, such as the possibility of closing local hospitals or the future of Oldway Massion.

Much of their newspaper is involved with Charity events with in Torbay
