1.  Remembrance Sunday

Lest we forget, this Sunday is Remembrance Sunday to commemorate those who fought and died for our country, so that we could all be free 'men' and not a number.  Join us at the War Memorial in the Royal Avenue Gardens at 11:00 and at St Saviour's Church at 11:30.

At an altitude of about 1,300ft on Dartmoor stands a lone cross firmly affixed to a large boulder, this is known as the Cave-Penney Memorial or the Sherwell Cross . It is an impressive monument in memory of a brave young man of just 19 years old who died in the First World War. At the bottom of the inscription are the following words, "Look up and lift your heads"  Evelyn Anthony Cave-Penney was a lieutenant in Queen Victoria's Own Corps of Guides who can be argued were one of the most famous regiments of the Indian Army. During World War One the infantry were sent to Egypt and Palestine.


2.  Curry at The Floating Bridge

Two weeks ago we reported: Every Winter Wednesday we are having  a curry night. It is all you can eat for £8.50 and prepared by our Asian Chef. Featuring 2 meat curries and 1 vegetarian curry complete with all the accompaniments,  this curry night is from 6pm to 8.45pm every Wednesday evening.  Check out their website by clicking here.

Well, we had to check this out!  We had some of the best cooked poppadoms ever, with a lovely and generous selection of chutneys.  The Chicken Korma had a delicate coconut flavour with creamy sauce and the Lamb Rogan Josh was spicy and full of tomatoes, just as it should be.  The vegetable curry had potatoes, mushrooms and other delicacies, a perfect accompaniment to the meat.  It said "all you can eat" and our MD Dave Cawley did just that!  Dave who is a connoisseur of curry and about 20 years ago with a friend got a national award for The Mumtaz in Bury St Edmunds, pronounced last night's curry as "the best pub curry ever" !

Why not come down for the weekend, or even a week?

3.   Calling all boat owners!

Sarah Duggan reports: Candlelit Dartmouth is now in its 4th year and will be over 3 days this year from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th December.

The magical lantern procession will take place on Friday at 6.30pm, followed by the switching on of the Christmas tree lights and the arrival of Santa by boat.  A new event on Saturday will involve the river and the organisers need people to get involved and join in the fun.

At 4pm, just as the light is changing, there will be an illuminated boat flotilla from the Higher to the Lower Ferry, it should look absolutely beautiful. So, if you have a boat, decorate it with fairy lights or lanterns and convene at the Resnova pontoon from 3.45pm. More information can be found on the website by clicking here or from Sarah Duggan at Baxters art gallery in Foss Street on 01803 839000.


4.   London River Tonight

Rachid Bouchareb’s spare, timely drama is set against the background of the July 2005 London bomb attacks. In Guernsey, widowed Elisabeth hears the news about the bombings and begins to worry about her daughter Jane, currently studying in the city. Meanwhile, Ousmane, an elderly African forester working in France sets out to find his long-estranged son, Ali. As both characters arrive in the north London area and make enquiries in different directions, it can’t be long before they meet. (Sotigui Kouyate, who won the Silver Bear at Berlin for his performance as Ousmane, died in April 2010 aged 73).

This film is on tonight. Guest tickets can be purchased on the night of the screening at The Windjammer pub in Victoria Road, Dartmouth for £3.60 per film, between 7.30 – 7.55 pm. New members can join at the door on any screening night. For further information contact: Clive Osborne on 079-6802-6449

Some of you will remember Tron, the Disney film of 1984 with at the time totally amazing graphics.  Now the sequel has come click here to see the HD trailer.  Wouldn't it be nice if the Film Society were able to get it?
