New Member of Torbay Council


Despite there having been no local elections in Torbay there will be a new face at this week's Full Council meetings.

A few weeks ago, Coral, Cllr Mandy Darling’s guide dog retired and was rehomed by fellow Liberal Democrat councillor Adrian Sanders. Now, following a period of intensive training, Cllr Darling returns to the Council chamber with a new dog, Pepsi, who was set to attend her first council meeting on Tuesday 9th May.

This is Cllr Mandy Darling’s fourth guide dog. Mandy said: “It is always difficult saying goodbye to a dog who has enabled my independence for many years, but Coral deserves her retirement. Pepsi, a 21 month black Labrador/retriever cross, is a real live-wire and, like Coral, works really well. I am looking forward, with the assistance of Pepsi, to getting out into the streets of the ward I represent, the heart of Torquay.”
