ROLLING DOWN THE RIVER: A new informal roller skating club is being set up on Exmouth seafront.

Roller Fit will be meeting up at the clock tower every Thursday evening from today, at 6pm, moving to 7pm in the summer.

Initially, the group will be free-skating around the seafront, but in future weeks may take on more challenging excursions including parts of the Exe Estuary Cycle Trail.

The organisers say it will work as a social network, as well as being a great way to keep fit. For more information, contact Shelly Stammers on 07872 150964 or visit www.facebook.com/rollerfit.
