Pier Pressure - Cruising Against Cancer

For those of you not yet up to speed with my Charity Run around the Country, please read here   http://www.pierpressure2016.co.uk/index.html


Saturday August 20th (Day 9 of 10)


A longer trip today passing through the English Riveria, all the way down to Falmouth before finally turning towards home. Today will mark both the furthest South and West we will travel on our trip. We will be grabbing a cuppa at Tintagel to find Arthur before ending up at Barnstaple.

Piers visited

48. Teignmouth  49. Torquay  50. Paignton  51. Falmouth





We will be staying the night at;

Travelodge Barnstaple
A39 North Devon Link Road,
Barnstaple
EX31 3RZ
Phone: 0871 984 6345


If you are in this area today, then I could really do with some help and support. If you have any official contacts that may be of use, then please let me know. If you know anyone in the local groups of the Breast cancer Care or Cancer Research Charities that we are supporting, Newspapers, Local media, local radio, Mayors, anyone official that is up for a photo shoot, or even rent-a-crowd to cheer us on, then can you get them to the piers for our photo shoots? If you have a Buggy and want to join us for todays cruise, then we would love to have you on board, the more the merrier.

Obviously, you can see that with what we are trying to accomplish, it does mean that we are very limited on time, so any drinks or refreshments that you can pass in the direction of the team would be very much appreciated, and silly things like pointing out where the nearest toilet stops are can really save us a lot of time.

Hopefully we will not need any, but it would be useful to know if anyone has any workshop facilities or tools nearby in case of emergency repairs.

And finally, its all about the money - every single penny counts, and it could be that one penny that makes the difference

So please, if you have not yet done so, then please click here:

Look forward to cruising with you

Paignton access has been pretty much sorted with the leader of the council, and I too am "discussing" access to Torquay - I figured that getting the Mayor to show his face was probably a good way of doing it, as they are unlikely to say no when he is actually present. That said, we live in a bay full of jobsworths, so please keep JC on the case too, as between us, we will manage it

Thanks Dave  ;-)up
JC says the Mayor likes his cars and gas been very supportive of motoring stuff on the green

I'm hoping as Jc works for torbay highways that he can pull a few strings.... ;D

Chad - just been informed that we have permission from Richard Brown for access onto Torquay Pier (I`ll show you where) and that the Mayor, Gordon Oliver will come down for a handshake / photo.

Paignton Pier is not a problem, as I will also have my official Paignton Regatta shirt with me, and that will get us through the road closure onto the pier approach road
