The Social Group is the favourite social organisation for singles. The Social Group was set up in the first place because of our own experience of being single and finding it really difficult to meet people and make new friends. Before there was The Social Group, we tried everything, and to be honest, were pretty appalled at the choice… We found the usual sad singles clubs had bizarre rules where women had to agree to dance with any man of any age who asked them, and then had to allow themselves be hit on in a really creepy way.
We found other local clubs who almost forced people to hold events in their own homes, paying to cater for the horde of complete strangers who descended upon them.

Posted on January 9, by duchyhotelgroup Devon villages and towns, so many dating back hundreds if not thousands of years have long had their fair share of ghouls and ghosts. And Torbay is no exception. Only a short way from any of our Duchy Hotels , the following places can be visited preferably not on a dark and windy night. The ghost of Squire Hill who lived in the 16th century is said to return to the Black House to seek his son whom he prevented marrying the young girl he loved and who consequently hung himself.
Churston Court Inn is said to be the visiting place for a medieval monk who has been seen walking through the passages and rooms. Candles that have been put out mysteriously relight on their own. Torre Abbey in Torquay was founded in In , nearly captured Spanish prisoners, at the time of the Armada, were held in the tithe barn next to the abbey. Few survived the dreadful conditions and one seaman was actually discovered on death to be a woman.
Her ghost has been seen in Torre Abbey meadows by the waterfront, looking wretched.

Jamie Reid looks dejected after his penalty miss saw Torquay United lose by one goal to Eastleigh Image: Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email A missed penalty by Jamie Reid ten minutes from time helped to condemn relegation-haunted Torquay United to yet another home defeat, their seventh in 14 Plainmoor games, at the hands of mid-table Eastleigh this afternoon. Gary Owers’ new-look Gulls recovered from one setback, Luke Young firing in his fourth goal of the campaign in the 33rd minute after Sam Matthews had given the visitors an early lead.
United, for whom new defender Conrad Balatoni looked solid in defence and Jake Gosling was lively in attack, played well enough for long periods to deserve at least a draw from the match. But they allowed Eastleigh defender Gavin Hoyte to snatch an opportunist second goal against the run of play in the 70th minute, and then the penalty-miss sealed their fate. Reid had driven a spot-kick to Graham Stack’s left to earn a draw at the Silverlake Stadium on Boxing Day, he went the same way this time, Ross Flitney guessed correctly and saved.

Gilbert the Gull at Plainmoor. Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Torquay United’s much-loved mascot Gilbert the Gull has quit his post at Plainmoor, prompting a furore on social media. The man who has inhabited the seagull suit for the past four seasons, Steve Jegat, has announced his resignation. Steve has quit after a row over posting pictures and updates on Facebook without asking the club’s permission to do so. The club says it is ‘unfortunate’ to lose the ‘brilliant and enthusiastic’ mascot.
Read More United and Gilbert will have a face-to-face meeting later this week to discuss the matter. Steve announced that he was flying the nest before Torquay’s scheduled home match with Eastleigh on New Year’s Day. Merry Christmas from Gilbert the Gull! The match was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, but if it had gone ahead, a substitute ‘Gilbert’ would have been pressed into action to serve inside the suit.

Family History Library Catalog the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia Torquay is a seaside town in Devon, England , and is part of the unitary authority area of Torbay. It lies 18 miles 29 km south of the county town of Exeter and 28 miles 45 km east-north-east of Plymouth , on the north of Tor Bay , adjoining the neighbouring town of Paignton on the west of the bay and across from the fishing port of Brixham.
The town’s economy, like Brixham’s, was initially based upon fishing and agriculture, but in the early 19th century Torquay began to develop into a fashionable seaside resort, initially frequented by members of the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars while the Royal Navy anchored in the bay. Renowned for its healthful climate, the town earned the nickname of the English Riviera and favourable comparisons to Montpellier in France.
In it was returned to Devon County Council control. Torbay was formed from the amalgamation of the Boroughs of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham.

Updated 4 April These potteries were based within about 5 miles of Torquay, in Devon, but also include a few other West Country potteries which copied the Torquay style. They were usually established by craftsmen who had learnt or practised their skills in Torquay. It can be confusing to new collectors that there is also a large pottery actually called Torquay Pottery, later Royal Torquay Pottery. The various potteries are all listed under the Potteries menu on this page.
We believe that the more experienced collector will also find something of interest and quite possibly have something to share with us. It is clear from some descriptions applied to pots for sale that these names may be interchangeable, they are not and only the experienced collector will be able to identify wares from each pottery. We hope you enjoy these pages and that your collection will be a pleasure for years to come. The collecting of pottery is a pleasure, to hold a pot perhaps a hundred years old in nearly identical condition now as it was the day it came out of the kiln, is always a joy.
