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
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
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" !
not come down for the weekend, or even a week?
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
or from Sarah Duggan at Baxters art gallery in Foss Street
on 01803 839000.
London River Tonight
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

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