Hi Chef.

Paignton-Kingswear Steam Train Santa Specials.

http://www.dartmouthrailriver.co.uk/events/santa-specials

 

The beauty of this one is that you can use public transport to get to Paignton and back, so if you wanted a drink, you don't have to drive.

Three-legged fancy dress race, Shaldon, Boxing day - involves regular pit-stops at local pubs.

RNLI Boxing Day walk in the sea, 11am (coachloads come from all over the county to see this event so get there early)

Anyone know if there any more Dickensian nights over at Totnes?

Good turnout for the Boxing Day dash in Teignmouth.  RNLI ran out of registration forms so more people than normal/expected must have turned up to brave the sea which actually wasn't as cold as I thought it would be - a pleasant 11 deg or thereabouts, apparently warmer than the air temperature.  A few tots of sloe vodka afterwards worked a treat.
