1.     A Curry at the Guildhall


The Guildhall played host to the fabulous Dartmouth Film Society Curry and Film Night, what a show!!  what a Curry!!

The Ballroom will accommodate 200 people making it the biggest public meeting place in Dartmouth.
It has a stage at one end, making it ideal for dramatic or musical events. A kitchen with full cooking facilities is also available.  To book the Ballroom for your event have a look at how reasonable the charges are by clicking here, and to book click here, to check out the Town Council web site click here.  You may even want to get married under a 200 year old painting?  Call the Clerk on 01803 832281.

2.    Burns night, the pictures

We all had a really great time in The Royal Castle Hotel for Burns Night.  Bill May from the Vintners provided a free Whisky Tasting session, and one of the Dartmouth dot TV crew had the Haggis starter and the Haggis Main Course!! (thank you Nic!)

3.   Shoes and cooking?

If you'd stopped by Danielli in Lower Street recently, hoping for a little shoe and clothing retail therapy, you'd have found it strangely quiet as the staff had decamped across the river to Kingswear. As a post Christmas treat owner Sarah Hanafee decided to take her team for a day at the Manna from Devon Cooking School.

Rather than the usual trip to a restaurant, Sarah thought it would be a lot more fun if they all cooked their own meal together and then invited their partners to join them for the evening. Holly and David at the Cooking School organised everything to enable them to create a wonderful Tuscan celebratory meal, teaching them to make fresh pasta, foccaccia bread, carpaccio of beef fillet and semifreddo, amongst an array of other dishes.

Sarah said of the day, ''We had great fun cooking together, learnt lots about Tuscan cuisine and had a great meal together; the girls want to do it again next year'.

4.  Memories of Dartmouth

Yes!  you can tell when there isn't much news, that's when we run this subject!!  This photograph is of the Manor House, Southtown.  It was built in 1727 when the main road to Stoke Fleming was the precipitous Swannaton Lane clinging to the northern slope of the Warfleet valley.  It was demolished early in the 20th century to make way for Manor Gardens with their magnificent panorama of the Bight, the Castles and the sea beyond.  It looks like we are all going to have a walk and try to locate the houses on the right?

  • Dee Nutt reports:  The Dartmouth Medical Practice and Dartmouth Caring in partnership, wish to become more proactive in supporting carers who are linked to the Medical Practice.  To be able to help them in a positive way, the Practice and Dartmouth Caring feel that they need to have an insight into carers' needs and anxieties and hopefully, with this knowledge, be able to help them in their role as a carer in their home environment.  To facilitate this they would like to invite carers to take up one of the following options;
    1. Contact Dee Nutt directly at the Dartmouth Caring office either in person or by telephone 9am – 12noon Monday – Friday on 01803 835 384
    2. Come and join Dee Nutt for coffee at the Guildhall 10.30am on Wednesday 26th March 2008
    3. Tea and coffee at the Clifton Room Guildhall 3pm Thursday 27th March 2008

    If any carer wishes to join Dee for either of the above please let Dartmouth Caring office know on 01803 835 384. Dee realizes that if you are caring for a loved one, your time is precious, so either meeting will be as brief as possible.  She hopes that carers can take up one of these options because only by talking to you, can the Medical Practice and Dartmouth Caring have an understanding of your needs.

  • This is soooo stupid but true...  and it's going to drive you crazy!
    While sitting at your desk,  lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
    Now, while doing this,  draw the number " 6 " in the air with your right hand.
    Your foot will change direction and there's nothing you can do about it!!
