Is your business Self Catering in Dartmouth?
Rain didn't stop play for today's Dartmouth
Community College Town Day. In fact there were more people
there than many events held in the sun! The variety of
stands was amazing, and if it hadn't been tipping it down just
as we were there, we would have feasted on the home made cakes
and listened for longer to the music played by students of the
BRNC Cocktail Party
The yearly Britannia Royal Naval College Cocktail Party went off
smoothly with 100s enjoying the great hospitality offered by
Commodore Martin Alabaster. BRNC is the largest
employer of Dartmouth people and the officers, staff, and parents
spend an awful lot of money in Dartmouth. But we must
never forget their real purpose; at an open day a few years ago, a
local personality asked about war, the Commander at the time, took
a deep breath, stretched himself to his full height, and slowly
and clearly said "we train our officers to fight wars..... and to win"
applause burst out and we all felt very humble. BRNC is
known worldwide as 'the' Naval Training College and many foreign
governments are sending their key students to be trained here.
New Italian restaurant
Adam Goodhall reports: Our new Italian Restaurant is now

4. Market Exhibition
Come down to Dartmouth's Old Market this Friday from 9:00am
until 2:00pm to
see the revised and full colour plans for the regenerated market.
The last exhibition showed that 85% of people would like to see
a change and greater use made of this wonderful spot.
Grade 2 listed and steeped in history, these plans will bring
life back into the old market.
5. Millie the Diva pig
Beyonce Knowles and Mariah Carey
must have been whispering into the sow like ears of Millie the
Diva pig as she demanded special piggy pampering, perfume and
flowers from two girls from Stover School, near Newton Abbot.
Emily and Carla are introducing ‘Posh Scarecrow’ to the perfumed
porker. Posh is Stover School’s entry into the Great Schools
Scarecrow Contest, any school can still enter the contest with
the winner receiving £100 for school funds.
Impatient Queen Millie is to be moved shortly into the new Porky
Pigs Palace being built for her and her friends at the
New Big Fun Farm at Woodlands.
Complete with gothic arches and towers the castle has all the
sumptuous accommodation a royal pig demands, and a right royal
welcome awaits Millicent’s expected babies as they will be the
first new arrivals in Porky Pigs Palace. Costing a cool million
all the animals are excited about the big move on July 22nd when
the Fun Farm is opened by dozens of scarecrows. Two friends
bringing a scarecrow to the Big Fun Farm will get free admission
on that day. Bidwell Brook Special School will benefit from all
the stalls, competitions and donations on Scarecrow Day.
More than 60 people
from Dartmouth's businesses crowded into the Yacht Club on Monday
to hear Steve Thomas talk about the Chamber of Trade's Candlelit
is very important for every business to help, drop into Baxter's
on Foss Street and have a chat with Sarah?
If you are thinking
of coming down, book now for a festive weekend from the 14th
-16th December including lantern lighting processions,
entertainment and a whole weekend of events. Dartmouth is
a wonderful place to do your Christmas Shopping! If you want to
see the press release,
your business Self Catering in Dartmouth?
If you put ' Dartmouth self catering ' into Google, we are the
second web guide entry regardless of selecting 'the web' or
just 'pages from the UK' As the American car hire firm
Avis once said "we are number two so we have to try harder
than our competition" and so it is with us, our website has
hundreds of lush images, thought provoking editorial, and so
much more than the others.
Last month more people went directly
from this newsletter to the Royal Castle web site than from any
other guide website. But more remarkably last
month 53,417 people went to the self
catering page. And these are all 'quality' hits.
Other accommodation providers have told us we are number 2
or 3 on their list of referrers so you really need to work with us?
Our website is one of the most popular in South Devon.
Our newsletter is read by 2,000 subscribers and many, many
more directly on the web
Obviously we cannot do this for free, it's not fair on us,
so at the end of this month everyone will still get their
free listing (providing your website links to us), but without
the photographs. We will be making a small service
charge of just £40 + VAT a year for the photographs, much less than
anyone else, and for arguably the best web site in
Dartmouth? If you leave it to the last day we will
have a big backlog, so may we suggest you put your Self
Catering home on
the paid up list soon! Check out this link soon
