Collection of Cruise Ships
Chrome Classics visit
5. Small News
Dartmouth has certainly had a good
week of ship visits, starting with Polar Star last Wednesday,
the Andrea on Sunday, followed by the massive Royal Princess on
Monday and finally the Endeavour on Tuesday. With perfect spring
weather we are sure the visitors and crew from the ships enjoyed
their time in our town and spent loads of money in our shops!
We believe the Andrea is returning to Dartmouth on Sunday/Monday
– watch out for her and be sure to give her passengers a warm
welcome whatever the weather.
On Monday Councillor Debbie Morris was formally elected
Mayor and Chairman of Dartmouth Town Council for the ensuing
year, with Councillor Richard Rendle M.B.E. as her Deputy.
Debbie takes over from Councillor Iris Pritchard who has
held the office for the last two years. In thanking her
fellow councillors for electing her she said she was looking
forward to guiding them well through the challenges facing
the town. Tributes were paid to the outgoing Mayor for her
hard work during the past two years.
A whole bunch of classic chrome cruisers came
to visit Dartmouth this Sunday. What better place to
spend a lazy Saturday or Sunday.

Programme available at the Tourist Information Office in
Mayors Avenue Car Park.
The whole town will be
buzzing, the Market Square, Royal Avenue Gardens, Bandstand,
the streets, Bayards Fort, The Castle, everywhere. If
you try hard you may get to see a quarter of what is
available. So book next year too?
