Paignton guest house owners Colin Bell and Jackie Dungie picked up more than just a few facts and figures on how the industry was doing at a recent tourism conference.

They also walked away with a brand new Amazon Alexa – the virtual assistant that allows you to play music, make calls and ask all types of questions.

It was the prize in a competition run by solicitors Wollens who had a stand at the English Riviera BID event at the Riviera International Conference Centre in Torquay.

Colin and Jackie, who run the award-winning Blue Waters Lodge in Leighon Road, were delighted with their prize – hand-delivered with a smile by Wollens partner Chris Linton.
