A TORQUAY beauty spa has taken on two new members of staff following an upturn in business. The e-beauty Clinic and Spa at the Grand Hotel has also expanded and now boasts a new reception and retail area, treatment rooms on two levels, and a double treatment room.

Owner Elly Hayes, said: "We have noticed a steady increase in the number of clients – both locals and hotel guests – and are pleased to say that we have now taken on extra staff to deal with the upturn.

" I am pleased to welcome Sarah Lee who will be acting manager on the days I am not there. Sarah has worked in some of the country's top spas, as well as spending a season on cruise ships where she helped develop and maximise the spa facilities on board cruises lines such as P&O."

Sarah comes to the Grand from the Old Government House Hotel and Spa, the only five-star hotel on Guernsey. She is also a former Student of the Year at South Devon College.

Elly's other addition is therapist Clancey Gold who has joined direct from college.

Elly said: "A recent survey says that business optimism in Britain is at its highest in 22 years.

"We are certainly feeling very optimistic here and want to make sure that we take full advantage of the economic upturn."
