1.     RNLI step up a pace

John Fenton reports:  Some of the Dartmouth RNLI crew had been waiting thirty three months for this week. At last the “huggy bears,” dry suits, lifejackets and helmets had arrived and Sea Survival Training could begin.
The twenty one volunteer crew members enrolled so far, tested out their kit for the first time in the safety of the pool at Capton Farm. The bet was that no one could touch the bottom of the pool whilst wearing an RNLI lifejacket – they couldn’t!

After tuition, each was then able to let off 'day and night' hand held flares. Every day since then the crew have been training on the Dart in groups of three, under the tuition of Simon James, RNLI Trainer from Brixham. This exercise was to right a capsized D class lifeboat and then restart the engine. The training boat is an old decommissioned lifeboat, only used for this capsize exercise.

2.    Dreaming of a Midsummer's Night

Malcolm Macintosh reports: Now in the fifth year, plans are well advanced for ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, and Dartmouth Shakespeare Week has firmly established itself as one of the major cultural events in Dartmouth’s calendar. This year’s production, with a cast of over 40 and with special guest appearances by some of Dartmouth’s well-known personalities, such as Simon Drew, Nigel Way, Hilary Bastone, Shahar Lashkar & Mike Jones of Sax Appeal, it is expected to be as exciting as ever. As always, the play will be presented in the open-air at Dartmouth Castle (St Petrox church if wet) over five nights, from 31 July to 4 August.

You might like to come down and see it, or better still why not come down this weekend, the sun is hot, the beer is cold and the Piemonte is chilled, as are we!  For self catering click here,  for B&B click here,  for Hotels click here For a Tourist Guide to Dartmouth click here.

5.   Browns Hotel 'Loves the Flavour'

We found this most excellent 42 page local food and drink guide in Browns Hotel when we were having a much needed cup of coffee.  Browns has a great selection of Wines, Sprits, Beers and Lagers, often from local sources, so why not pop in and sample some?  You never know, you might like it so much you book dinner next week?
