Climate Change: the local impact
Dartmouth & Kingswear Society Open Forum: You are invited to
the Society’s Open Forum on Tuesday, 19th February in The
Flavel, Dartmouth at 7.30 p.m. on “Climate Change: the local
impact”. Experts from the Environment Agency and Devon
County Council will start by outlining the changes expected
and their anticipated local consequences. The meeting will
then be open for general discussion. The meeting is free, so
come along and hear the expert view and express your
concerns, hopes and views to those planning the future.
Everyone is welcome.
On a sultry summer day in 1935, an upper-class British
family prepares for a dinner party at their country estate.
The players: Briony Tallis (newcomer Saoirse Ronan), a
precocious preteen writer; her older sister Cecilia (Keira
Knightley), Cambridge graduate and femme fatale; Robbie
Turner (James McEvoy), the housekeeper's mensch-y son, who
carries a torch for Cecilia; and various visitors and family
members. A series of misperceptions, fuelled by the summer
heat and Briony's childish hurts and fevered imagination,
lead to a dramatic false accusation that lands Robbie in
jail. We meet all three characters five years later in the
thick of World War II, as foot soldier Robbie prepares for
the Dunkirk evacuation and the two estranged sisters train
as nurses in London.
Thursday 21st February.
Our bar at The Guildhall will open at 7.30 - the film to be
shown at 8pm approx.
Guest tickets will be for sale in The Windjammer 7.30-7.55
Dartmouth Caring 2nd Gala Dinner
On Saturday at the Royal Castle Hotel Dartmouth Caring held
its 2nd Gala Dinner and Auction of Promises. The speaker for the
evening was Tony Beard the “Wag of Widdecombe”, he also
facilitated the auction. The evening was well supported by many
in the local community and it commenced with Mr. Tim Hailstone,
one of the Charity’s Trustees introducing the evening by
re-emphasising that although in the last year the Charity
has developed beyond recognition, with the complexity and the
workload, fund raising still needs to continue for it to
maintain its momentum. Dartmouth Caring still needs volunteers,
so if any of you have time to spare and wish to volunteer to
help in the local Community please contact the office on 01803
Every now and again, we will show a small part of Dartmouth.

mention in the news!
This object caused a lot of
comment when unveiled.
Barbara Bowers reports: It is a very busy time for the
Art Society and the paint brushes are red hot! At the
end of January we had a demonstration in watercolours by
Paul Weaver. His subject was 'figures in a French market
As he worked from a tonal sketch to composition he talked
his audience through every step he was taking.
Next Thursday 21st there will be a demonstration in oils by
Michael Sanders who until recently was chairman of The
Society for All Artists and whose work is well-known
nationally. On the remaining Thursdays of the month members
meet in Townstal Community Hall to do their own work with
the opportunity to do figure drawing from a model. For
