Shoalstone Pool took a major beating from the high winds and waves of Storm Emma. Railings torn off, damage to the surrounding wall and doors wrenched off their hinges, the kiosk seemed to end up over by the Breakwater Bistro. The damage has been estimated at £20,000 and so there are a number of fundraising events and activities taking place in the town in the hopes that the pool can be fixed and ready to open in May for the summer season.

On the first Friday of every month, The Friends of Brixham Library are now holding a coffee morning. As a regular fund raiser, everyone is welcome between 10.00am and 12.00 noon with coffee or tea being served and cake and biscuits too. So why not pop your head around the door; arrange to meet up friends or relatives there or perhaps go along to make new friends too. At the same time, it is a wonderful opportunity to look for a book, borrow a CD or DVD for the weekend or just enjoy using the library for a quiet morning browse. Chairman of the Friends, Alasdair Anderson, said ‘our coffee mornings have been a great success with lots of people turning out to enjoy a natter over a cup of coffee. The library makes a great stop off place if you’re out in town shopping and a great place to arrange to meet people too’. So why don’t you make this a regular date in your diary?
