You may like to add some of your own in the comments section below. Thank you for Plymouth Sound In Plymouth, we are blessed with one of the most beautiful natural harbours in the World. it has been host to historic events, wartime drama and international sporting challenges. Now we can use it freely for our own pleasure pretty much any day of the week. How many other cities can boast that? Thank you for Dartmoor National Park Yes, I know there are more national parks near Plymouth, but Dartmoor is the closest and, in my opinion, the absolute best.

Hold Out Your Hand

Hold Out Your Hand

Recently, the death of the celebrity Robin Williams has dominated both news media and social media. I’m glad it has, because it has led to a lot of public discussion about depression. It is high time we all started to hold out a hand to help each other through the tough times. An Invisible Affliction For too long, depression has remained an invisible affliction. A secret burden that is carried not just by the individual but also by their loved ones.

Could Storm Damage Spell Disaster for Plymouth?

Plymouth is cut off from the rest of the country to everyone but road users. I’d like to say this has never happened before, but we all know that’s not the case, don’t we? Sadly this situation is becoming all too common. Severe Damage The recent storms which have lashed the South West of Britain have caused severe damage to the sea wall at Dawlish where the railway line runs very close to the sea. So severe that the line is literally suspended over empty space at one stretch. The rail link has been closed previously due to damage at Dawlish, but this latest catastrophe sets a new standard.
