Delicious Dart Trail
We are happy to yet again support this unique local event by being one of the foodie stops on the trail!
If you’re a fan of local food, drink and scenic running, it’s time to grab yourself a nibble, pour your favourite tipple, lace up your trainers and read on... The Delicious Dart Trail...a trail running event with a difference.
Starting in Totnes, participants will run across field, coastal path & water (well…using the ferry!) to Dartmouth, sampling a wide variety of the finest local produce along the way.
By the time they reach Dartmouth, participants will have clocked up 15 miles of spectacular riverside trail and tasted more than a dozen different beers, wines, liqueurs, savouries and puddings. An alternative 10 mile route which stops short in Dittisham and includes transportation by ferry to the finish in Dartmouth is also an option. The popular event only has 350 entries available on The Delicious Dart Trail and sold out in two weeks!
Proceeds from the Delicious Dart Trail will go to CHICKS, a wonderful charity which provides respite breaks at its centres in Devon and Cornwall for disadvantaged kids from all over the UK
Come & cheer on the fancy dress bedecked runners!
Love, Love, Mums....bring your mum in on Mother's Day & we'll give her a complimentary cake!

Saturday 26th March, 2pm – 5pm
Alf’s will be hosting a fabulous afternoon tea to support the National Coastwatch Institute Froward Point to help raise funds for new telescopic equipment.
The café will stay open after 2pm, and lunches and afternoon tea will be served from 2pm to 5pm, with lots of yummy homemade cakes, Devon cream teas & sweet treats. Free wi-fi will also be available.
Get baking…please drop your cakes & biscuits to the café on the morning of Saturday 26th if you would like to contribute your home bakes.
NCI Froward Point Watch Station is situated on the Inner Froward Point headland above Kingswear with the South West Coast path running alongside.
Froward Point is manned by over 50 trained & qualified watchkeers (unpaid volunteers) who maintain a watch for emergencies at sea and a contact point for emergencies on shore. Watches are maintained visually, with radio and with radar. The station is totally dependent on the generosity of individuals, companies and other organisations for funding.
All money raised will go towards the NCI Froward Point & their essential work in keeping our coastline safe.
