KING STREET CLOSURE UPDATE
Whilst the road closure is in place, to help motorists and cyclists, Torbay Council have put up diversion signs. Unfortunately these diversion signs appear slightly misleading and appear to direct traffic into Fore Street. This is NOT the case and as the 2 signs at the entrance to Fore Street stipulate, this is a pedestrian zone from the hours of 10am - 10pm for all vehicles including bicycles, seven days a week. Also there is no loading or unloading within these times and parking is prohibited at ALL times. We ask residents and visitors to please be mindful of the ongoing closure and to find alternative routes for their journey and to not use Fore Street as we fear this may lead to an accident.
It was great to welcome some of the staff from the Driving & Vehicle Standards Agency (Newton Abbot) today. As some of the staff live in Brixham they wanted to carry out a group litter pick and help us Keep Brixham Beautiful. They were joined by our Lengthsmen Supervisor, Bryon, and spent the morning in and around the Town finishing with a delicious (we are reliably informed) fish and chips! Thankyou to Beverley and her team for all their hard work in the glorious sunshine. If your group, organisation or work colleagues would like to get involved and organise your own Litter Picking event, please call 01803 859678 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The COVID-19 vaccine pop-up session that is being held today, Tuesday 7 June from 10:30am to 5pm has been relocated from Brixham Town Centre car park, Middle Street, Brixham, TQ5 8DY to the Scala Hall, Town Hall, Market Street, Brixham.
JUBILEE CELEBRATIONSWell what a lovely 4 day weekend that was. We hope you managed to get out and about and enjoy some of the many different events - at least the weather was on our side (mostly). The Council would like to thank Brixham Futures for all their hard work and organisation that were months in the planning and to all of the Community Groups, Organisations and Volunteers who ensured everyone had a great time. Thank you. If you have any photos taken over the 4 days please feel free to share them in the comments. We hope to have our photos back soon and will be sharing them on our website and social media pages.
