CANDLES ON THE COBB – LYME REGIS

Candles on the CobbOn the 24th of August 2008 I attended the Candles on the Cobb charity fundraising event at Lyme Regis. The evening saw 5000 tea candles laid out along Cobb harbour walls in memory of people who had passed away. To protect the candles from the wind they were placed in empty upturned plastic pint glasses with the bottoms removed. After the usual obligatory drawn out thank you speeches the candles were lit just before sunset. The best view was from up in the gardens that over look the cobb although the street lights can be a bit of a pain when trying to take photographs. This year the weather was almost perfect and it is an event that I can thoroughly recommend. The next Candles on the Cobb will be held in 2010 and then in our Olympic year of 2012.
