    No harm in early-bird Christmas: it's the sort that even the turkeys would vote for.

    Would you believe I've never been in Torquay but I've always thought it looked like a lovely place to visit, just as long as the Hotel Richmond doesn't resemble Fawlty Towers...!! ☺

    I've never been to any 'Southern' resorts, being a regular to the North Yorkshire coastline - a change would be nice...
