The early May Bank Holiday is an action packed weekend in South Devon with two great events taking place.  The now world famous Brixham Pirate Festival takes place from Saturday 29th April until Monday 1st May, billed as “the annual gathering of the World’s most infamous pirates and lowly scallywags”.  There is entertainment for the whole family over the weekend including a programme of music, pirate skirmishes and an opportunity to join the Brixham Pirate Crew!  The whole town will be decked out with the “skull and cross bones” with the main street and harbour becoming a fashion parade for all manner of pirate attire.  Just along the coast on Paignton seafront is the annual BMAD bike festival running from Friday 28th April until Sunday 30th April.  Now in its 12th year the festival is promoted as the biggest biker, music and beer festival in the South West all set against a backdrop of Paignton’s wonderful beach.  The seafront is normally lined from end to end with motorcycles of every shape, size and age, an amazing spectacle!  The bikes are complimented by trade stands and a music pavilion combined with a beer festival.  All proceeds go to charity.  If you are looking to join the action in estate agency Eric Lloyd & Co are looking to recruit an office co-ordinator/sales administrator for our busy branch at Churston Broadway, Paignton.  It is a full time position to join the crew of office manager Rachel Cowls and sales negotiator Tina Barber.  For further details walk the gang plank to Jonathan Bye on 01803 852773 or jonathan@ericlloyd.co.uk – an eye patch or motorbike are not compulsory!
