The coffee mornings are open to anyone - Credit: YES Brixham
In a bid to break the lockdown blues, YES Brixham has recently launched its very own, free-to-access community coffee morning.
The coffee morning, aimed at people of all ages, will be meeting every Friday morning at 11am until midday via the online platform Zoom.
These sessions have been planned as a part of YES Brixhams response to Covid-19 and are all about connecting with new people, sharing stories, and seeing a friendly face or two.
The sessions are open to anyone and can be accessed through Zoom using the meeting ID 885 9401 6236, the password is 851414. Unfortunately for obvious reasons, no biscuits or coffee will be provided, but bring your own!
YES Brixham has been offering free-to-access weekly activity since the very first lockdown.
The Young Volunteers meet via Zoom every Wednesday at 6.30pm. The Young Volunteers is a group of young people aged 14 to 25 committed to making a difference to their local community.
Over the summer months you may have seen us litter picking around Brixham, particularly on its beloved Breakwater.
Young Volunteers are currently planning a new project redeveloping a plot of land into a new community garden.
If you would like to learn more about how to get involved or join the group of Young Volunteers, you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
The MusicAtTheEdge project has also delivered free-to-access music workshops every week via Zoom since the lockdowns began.
The group of local musicians meet online every Thursday at 4pm to play music, share songs, plan online festivals and create collaborative music videos!

Torbay is a large bay on Devon's south coast. Overlooking its clear blue waters from their vantage points along the bay are three towns: Paignton, Torquay and Brixham. The bays ancient flood plain ends where it meets the steep hills of the South Hams. These hills act as suntrap, allowing the bay to luxuriate in its own warm microclimate. It is the bays golden sands and rare propensity for fine weather that has led to the bay and its seaside towns being named the English Riviera.
Brixham sweeps down from the rocky cliffs at Torbay's southern reaches. Fishing is still the primary industry of the Town and has been for over 900 years. Crabbers and Beamers cast off from its harbour on a daily basis, and this is the place to be if you are looking to explore an authentic fishing port and find great seafood.
Paighnton adorns the centre of the bay. The beauty of the golden beaches with their safe bathing and the many family based attractions and facilities make this the place to head for those travelling with children.
Torquay is the most northerly of Torbay's towns. It blossomed in the 19th century when it became famous as a health resort. Today its marinas, restaurants, wine bars and shops offer more contemporary attractions to visitors and locals alike.
