@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.
I think that I would prefer to use the Rock Pool Café. Just my opinion.
In addition to what @wriggler above said, I had a look in Sainsburys a few days ago and purchased a pack of Jam Doughnuts. There were Five doughnuts in the bag which cost me the princely sum of 65p. Now, call me disloyal to local shops, but why should I go to a bakers in the Strand to buy a jam doughnut for 65p EACH when I can buy a pack of 5 for the same price and which the kids enjoy ...
