Wembury is a lovely village with a great pub called "The Odd Wheel", a post office and general store, a grocery shop, two hairdressers and a small industrial site.

I am so envious of all the guys I know that grew up here: Just imagine, schools out and on with the wetsuit and out on a surfboard. 

Since moving to Wembury, the local Parish Council heard of me and immediately press-ganged me into becoming a parish councillor; I used to be a Borough Councillor back in Elmbridge. This was the first step in putting something back into the community. Since then I have been pressed into volunteering as a school governor and I also run the "Beach Liaison Group". I am also chair of the Parish of Wembury Neighbourhood Plan 

I've met a lot of great people in "The Odd Wheel" where Jamie successfully chooses an excellent selection of "real ales", some from very local breweries.

Down at the beach there is the Wembury Marine Centre who have a permanent exhibition and educational centre which is open during summer months.  Schoolchildren from nearby Plymouth come to the Marine Centre to learn about the seas around us.
