Local Growth Minister Jake Berry MP agreed to meet a special delegation from Torbay in Westminster. He heard about the Herald Express’ ‘Now Is The Time’ campaign – which aims to promote Torbay and recognise and celebrate success in the Bay to encourage investment in the area. The delegation comprised members of Torbay Together, a strategic task force set up in the Bay from across public, private and community sectors, unified to make Torbay a prosperous place to live and work.

Jasmine was hand-picked to work on a special project for the meeting. She hand-painted Russian Dolls which signified the many layers of Torbay. Each doll represented key areas such as education, health, housing, business and coastal community.

Affectionately nicknamed ‘Matilda’, the doll served its purpose of leaving a lasting impression as the Minister pledged to visit Torbay.
