5.   Strange Gardens in Dartmouth tonight

Each Sunday, Jacques, a primary school teacher, does an amateur clown show at the village fair, to the horror of his 14-year-old son, Lucien. But one day, André, Jacques’ best friend, takes the boy aside to reveal the secret behind his father’s hobby.

He tells him that at the end of the Second World War, he and Jacques committed an act of resistance to impress a girl with whom they were smitten. As a result, they were captured by the Germans with two other unlucky companions. Thrown in a pit while waiting to be shot, the four men received a big lesson in humanity. Through André’s account, Lucien discovers a side to his father that he’s never seen.

Strange Gardens is a wonderful film with light moments, sad ones, funny ones and superb acting.  Don't miss it! Guest tickets are for sale at The Windjammer 7.30-7.55 £3.50  Our bar at The Guildhall is open from 7.30 - the film to be shown at 8pm approx.

6.   Does Dartmouth dot TV really work Part II?

You might remember last week when we told you how good advertising was on Dartmouth dot TV, we were inundated with calls congratulating us and thanking us, we were humbled!

We are often number one on Google and proud of it.  Your customers read this news, and they look for their holiday accommodation here.

Many callers asked why the TIC, Town Council and Dartmouth dot TV did not pool resources and make an even bigger impact.  We are up for it, and have suggested this very idea many times.  Marketing Dartmouth is important, there is simply no place for politics and boxes.

Last week we heard that Dartmouth Directory was for sale and we immediately submitted an expression of interest, we were willing to pay twice the asking price, no reply though!!  If you have bought it or know who has, we have some 'very' important information for them, click here to let us know.

Many think our telephone list is the best click here to find out?

Others simply can't get enough of our News Archives, click here and see if you agree?

All advertisers should note the new conditions that will come into effect on July 31st by clicking here.
