Visitors to the seaside resort can pick up postcards from cafes, food stalls and attractions bearing a number they can text to offer their opinion on the standard of service they received during their visit. Twenty businesses are participating in the scheme.

And it's a win-win for everyone. Praise will boost the traders' morale and encourage them to stay focused. Any criticism can always be learned-from and improvements made.”
