About the Concessions

Charlie’s Mast

One mobile vehicle or similar to sell tea, coffee and other hot drinks and cold snacks.  A very popular location following completion of the sea defences along to Fairhaven Lake.  Due to its popularity, the Council expect to receive tender bids in excess of £5,000 per annum.

St Paul’s Car Park

One mobile vehicle or similar to sell ices, sweets and cold drinks.  This location has operated successfully in the past, but was suspended for 2 years due to the closure of the car park whilst the sea defences were completed.

One mobile vehicle or similar to sell ices, sweets and hot & cold drinks and cold snacks.  This is a very popular location for kite surfing, horse riding and dog walking throughout the year.
