@ Merlin 228. I wouldnt think that the people we are referring to in this thread will be frequenting the Rockpool Café for the drink, as 1/ they would not pay the inflated price for it and 2/ they would prefer to get it cheaper (or 'lift it') from one of the local supermarkets.
@ Stephen. No, not that Red Rock, but the one in Sandy Lane, and as flo says, not exactly luring people into town as there is a big car park there and have no reason to go into town. If we had a decent bandstand on the Lawn, (like we were supposed to be getting back in 2000) instead of that crumbling eyesore, then why not get more acts to use that? Get rid of that tacky basketball thing ...
@Paul LOL. It sure does. Paul Gasgoine is a prime example.
@BB. You will find that the vast majority of people in Dawlish want these events, but when it comes to helping out, they're not interested and it's always left to the same few and I talk from experience, as I volunteer for many things that go on in Dawlish. They want everything for nothing but give nothing in return. Standing by for lots of abuse.
That will be a waste of time as people will still cross the road. Putting up signs does not work because we are a nanny state and peoples common sense has since long gone.
More care = Use the crossing which is just a few metres along. It's all about educating people to use the crossing. As I have said previously, you wouldn't walk over a cliff top because there wasn't a fence there to stop you doing it. Same as walking along the sea wall. Common sense tells you not to do it.
I hope the woman is ok but the driver in his mid 80's, should NOT be allowed to drive at that age.
@Lynne What happened to COMMON SENSE? There is a propper CROSSING by the place. Would YOU purposly walk over a cliff top because there wasn't a fence there? Lack of Common sense and decent parenting, along with the Sue Sue Sue society which we have inherited from the USA has ruined this country.
I see they are doing a special. Cod, Chips and a flaming Sambuca. LOL.
@stephen15 Hi Stephen. The location. My personal preference is that I dont fancy sitting there with all the trains going by making a noise, and having loads of people walking by all the time. At least with the Rock Pool Café, it is a more 'open' area and quieter, plus you can still see the trains go by if wanted. I hope this answers your question. Enjoy your sunny Sunday.
