BRIXHAM DOES CARE this year again offers TWO special opportunities
to celebrate Christmas.
First up, there is a Magical Musical Night in the Scala Hall
on Friday 6th December at 6.30pm, when a fish and chip* supper is
followed by entertainment provided by the Brixham Town Band. Tickets £12.
(*Alternatives available.) Great fun – not to be missed.
For those who prefer afternoon entertainment, the annual
Mince Pie Christmas Singalong takes place in the Brixham Does Care Café next
door on Monday 9th December, from 1.45 to 3.45pm. Doors open at 1.15pm. Following their huge success at last year’s
event, the children of Furzeham Primary School Choir are once again scheduled
to perform and a raffle will be held during the interval. Tickets at £4 include a free cuppa and a
mince pie and are available from the BDC Office next door in the Town Hall,
01803 857727. Everyone is invited to come along and sing along with hosts
Martyn & Josephine Paddon for an afternoon of fun and entertainment. However, regulars are reminded that numbers
are STRICTLY LIMITED, therefore pre-purchased tickets are essential and you are
advised to arrive early.

THE 12th ANNUAL fundraising variety show,
“Memories Are Made Of This“, took place at the Berry Head Hotel in front of
another packed audience. The
magnificent sum of £920.50 was raised on behalf of befriending charity Brixham
Does Care – the highest amount for 8 years!
The success of this show is not measured just in numbers or pounds
sterling. It was wonderful to see talented
members of the community, young and old, amateur and professional, joined on
the dance floor by an enthusiastic
audience, who were willing them to succeed.
In true show business tradition, when human and technical glitches
occurred, everyone carried on regardless, as if saying: “The show must go
on!” The dancing by the Totnes School of
Dance was truly exquisite. Male vocalist
Harrison delivered smooth Sinatra classics.
Songstress Tina Shiraz got us all dancing, and guitarist Rick Courtney
had us reaching for our air guitars. Comedian Vic Baulton tickled our funny
bones. Compere Martyn Paddon added some
classic favourites. Finally, Furzeham
Performing Arts Group lit up the show as they delivered songs from Mary Poppins,
making their families and teachers extremely proud. A HUGE Thank You is owed to everyone
concerned, not least the audience who show their continued support.
