artist paints German frigate
After visiting Paul Barclay's design studio Nautical Voyages,
the Captain of
German Frigate Mecklenburg-Vorpommern commissioned Paul to illustrate and
produce limited edition prints for each vessel visiting
Devonport. Before the ship left, Paul and his wife,
Marianne, were treated to a tour and afternoon tea on board
the frigate with Captain Reineken.
Paul has somewhat of a reputation as a commercial artist, but
he does much, much more as you can see by visiting him at his
gallery in Oxford Street Dartmouth. Or visit his

Lizzie reports; The Picnic Boat is 'For Sale' as a going
concern. I'm ready for the next chapter of my life and am
happy to sell the boat only if it goes to someone who is
interested in keeping old customers happy and carrying on
with the picnics.
I think it's a very attractive business for someone who
perhaps wants out of the city life, wants to make the move
to Dartmouth and have the business knowledge to take The
Picnic Boat nationwide! I'm sure you know how well branded
the boat is and believe like me that it's an asset to

Our goal is to promote Dartmouth
to both locals and visitors. We have all seen some
other coastal towns in decline and yet Dartmouth shines out
as such a wonderful place. Dave Cawley our owner said
"if I live to be as old as my Grandfather, I will be in
Dartmouth for another 39 years. I want to be able to
walk along the embankment on a rainy February Thursday and
find the many pubs and restaurants open and thriving, I want
to look at art and be able to buy local products from local
people" Dartmouth News will help sustain this
We'd like every business in
Dartmouth to work with us and help by sponsoring us.
No one in or around the Dartmouth News team,
or the Dartmouth dot TV team, has any commercial interest in
tourism; they gain nothing, except for the pleasure of
living in such a beautiful place. If you want to help
us, whether you are a business or just a reader, then
click here, we accept
donations of as little as £5! and you may pay by credit card
or anything you like. Another way of helping to
Keep Dartmouth Special is to tell us about your news and
events - we all like to read about what is happening.
During the last 2 years or so,
national press, local press and individuals have clamoured
for our photography. We broke the news on Marks &
Spencer and Mitch Tonks before anyone. You will often
see us shopping in town, walking on the Embankment and out
to the castle, in a 20 year old boat on the river, or
supping a beer or two in one of the pubs. You may see
us with a large professional camera, or you may not see us
with an innocent looking compact camera. But whatever,
we are documenting the life of Dartmouth for posterity.
