Ahoy! Everyone at JackSpeak sends lots of good New Year wishes to all of our customers for 2020.
Its been a real pleasure to receive all of your fabulous photos from around the world wearing our clothing brand, in what has been big year for JackSpeak; not only did we celebrate our 1st year anniversary of trading, we launched our very own JackSpeak Rum too. We love seeing the map on the wall fill up and are delighted that you all seem to love our clothing so much. We very much hope you will continue our ‘brand tradition’ with the rum too and hope you will send us photos of unusual places to have a tot perhaps? As long as they are ship shape and above board!
Based in Dartmouth, Devon, our shop is situated on the beautiful and scenic coastline that is the South Hams. We are blessed with the sea, the River Dart, amazing coastline walks and beaches as well as some fantastic independent shops and restaurants. Dartmouth also has over 15 pubs and bars, plus 2 in Kingswear if you fancy a ferry ride (and we have 3 of those to get you over the river where you will find a steam train too!): quite impressive for a small town nestled in a valley in the south of Devon. Dartmouth has 2 yacht clubs, an escape room, an outdoor and indoor swimming pool, a castle and an arts centre too. Plus much, much more!
The Britannia Royal Naval College overlooks the town, guarding it in all its majestic glory and we have a strong naval relationship in the town. But it is our sense of community and welcome to visitors that sets us apart from other towns in Devon. There are some amazing events and festivals that run throughout the year, such as the Music and Food Festivals, Woofstock and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta to name a few. These are all run by volunteers for everyone to enjoy and everyone is always assured of a warm welcome. Dartmouth is extremely dog friendly too, which means no one needs to be left behind.
So if you are contemplating a quick break, at any time of the year, why not think about visiting Dartmouth? You could come into the shop and say hi and see where the Jack Speak story started and enjoy all the rest our beautiful town and surrounding area has to offer too.
We look forward to seeing you in 2020, and keeping you up to date with our new arrivals, but in the meantime we hope that 2020 started with a bang for you!
