Lauren said: “Judging the High Street hero award wasn’t easy given the varied businesses we have across Torbay. All the applicants were of such a great standard. The winners of each town stood out to me, as they make a difference to the bay in unique ways, which is obviously important to ensure we continue to love our high streets!”
