Christmas Tree Donation
A huge thank you to Maureen Pope and her family for the generous donation of a beautiful Christmas Tree for the Town.
The Lengthsmen cut and removed the tree yesterday and are busy installing it on Kings Quay, beside the Man & Boy statue today. The lights will be fitted tomorrow and switched on at the forthcoming Lanterns, Lights & 'Luminations event on the 27th November.
The family requested for the tree to be located beside the memorial to lost fishermen in memory of family members they have personally lost as well as the loss the community has felt over time.
The Town Council currently owns and manages four allotment sites as below:
The Town Council also manages a further site at Penn Lane.
The Town Council took over the administration of the Brixham Allotment gardens in October 2008. Brixham Town Council has a policy of ‘one person one plot’ to enable those on the waiting list to more readily get an allotment. All Town Council allotment gardens are monitored regularly, except during prolonged periods of bad weather such as this winter’s exceptional rainfall, and plot holders who are not cultivating their plots adequately are contacted to ensure that no plot falls below standard or into disuse.
There are still waiting lists of people wanting allotments however we currently have 2 vacant allotments at Dixons Land in Alma Road and no one currently on that waiting list.
Would you like an allotment? If so, please contact the Town Council by calling 01803 859678 or email: email@example.com You must live in Brixham to qualify for an allotment with us.
