I find it surprising,
disappointing and frustrating that various Brixham clubs and
organisations do not make better use of your website. In particular,
the local cricket and football teams would surely benefit from
advertising their matches on your site, together with match
reports. The reports do not have to be "war and peace", a couple

As a member of the
Froward Point, Kingswear National Coastwatch Institution I have
been trying to find out the history of the Brownstone Battery

There are a few reasons
why I and my family are totally against a big Tesco to build
in the central part of Brixham.
1) Where we used to live before moving
to Brixham 10 years ago, Tesco moved into the small town, which
was about the size of Brixham. Within 2 years, we lost 2 independent
bakers, 3 independent greengrocers, 4 independent butchers,
an independent florist, several small newsagents, a clothing
outlet, 3 smaller supermarkets including Co-op and what was
a thriving Saturday market, plus a few other shops. It is now
a town mainly full of restaraunts, charity shops, Tesco, coffee
shops, Aldi, hairdressers and offices.
With respect to
the proposed supermarket development and related issues.
