"Time to celebrate our fishing industry"

Families are being asked to buy local fish today and watch an online feed while eating it.

A virtual event is taking place tonight highlighting the work of the Brixham-based industry.

It’ll include live music performances and videos about local fishermen and starts at 5.30pm.

Helen Lovell, Mission Port Officer at The Fishermen’s Mission, says the industry is having a tough time at the moment - after suffering in storms even before the Covid-19 pandemic.

The mission offers immediate financial assistance for rent, food, utility bills, school dinners or school uniform and an emergency response as well as bereavement or family difficulty support.

Tonight's event is a partnership between charities, including Yes Brixham and the town council.
