The Town Council will give notice  of the meeting through the local press and staff will be happy to advise on the best way of getting items on to the agenda.

The Annual Town Meeting is   in the Woodmead Halls,  Residents and non-residents are entitled to attend the meeting and to raise for debate any issue concerning the town.  Priority will be given to questions notified in advance to the town council offices, by post or email admin@lymeregistowncouncil.gov.uk


 

 Great Dorset Beach Clean: 'We have cancelled the Great Dorset Beach Clean for 2020 due to Coronavirus. We hope to be back later in the year with another event.'

Come and join us on our FREE Great Dorset Beach Clean at Lyme Regis and Charmouth! Help clean up your local beach and make it a much safer place for wildlife and us.

The annual beach clean-up returns as part of the ‘Litter Free Coast and Sea’  week! Bring your friends and family and lend a hand at any of the designated beaches.  Please wear suitable clothing and shoes for the conditions  Help to remove plastics and other rubbish from the shore. The vast majority of litter found on Dorset’s beaches is made of plastic, which steadily accumulates if not removed.  As standard plastics never degrade, they circle around the world in ocean currents and can cause long-term damage.  Whales, dolphins and turtles can mistake floating plastic bags for the jellyfish which form part of their diet. Once swallowed the plastic bag blocks the stomach and leads to a slow death through starvation.

Saturday   Charmouth  9.30 - 11am at the bottom of Charmouth Heritage Centre steps.

Sunday  Lyme Regis:  11am - 1pm  Meeting point & Briefing by the slipway near the Cobb,   Bags, buckets and picker-uppers supplied to give Monmouth beach a spring clean.

Stay for as much or as little as you like! All equipment is provided.  All children need to be accompanied by an adult.  No need to register, just turn up on the day!  Please wear suitable footwear and clothing for the weather.

Regatta & Carnival
Easter Bonnet Parade

It is with a great deal of sadness that, because of the on-going pandemic, we have had to cancel the Easter Bonnet Parade due to be held on Easter Sunday 4th April. We know that many people will be disappointed as this is a very popular event in the Lyme Regis Calendar.

However, we are encouraging people to dress up in their most creative, home-crafted Easter bonnets to participate in the ‘Lyme Regis Virtual Easter Bonnet Parade’, which proved to be so successful last year.

Would-be participants have until 4pm on Saturday 3rd April to send in their photo entries, either via emailing easter@lymeregiscarnival.co.uk or messaging the Lyme Regis Carnival Facebook page.

Please remember to include the name and age (if under 18) of the person in the photo plus where the entrant is from. A photo featuring the entrant wearing the bonnet and a close up of the bonnet would be ideal. You could also send a short video of the entrant parading with their bonnet.

So grab the glue and get creative! Prizes will be awarded for the best entries.

The parade will take place at 3pm on the carnival Facebook page with a video featuring all the entrants. The video will also appear on YouTube.
