1.  Exeter Cathedral Choristers visit Dartmouth

Laurie Preece reports: On Saturday 24 April at 4.00pm in St Saviour's Church, Dartmouth, the Exeter Cathedral Senior Choristers directed by Andrew Milligan, will be performing a concert in aid of Dart Music Festival and the Choristers. The choir's extensive repertoire covers a wide range of music from medieval plainsong to contemporary works and they will be joined at this concert by the Dean of Exeter Cathedral, The Very Revd Jonathan Meyrick.  Tickets for the concert are available from the Dartmouth Tourist Information Centre, priced at £10.00


2.   New facilities in Dartmouth Market

Dave Cawley, Chairman of Dartmouth Town Council's Corporate Property Committee and Town Mayor Debbie Morris opened the new Public Lavatories in the Old Market yesterday.  Cllr Dave Cawley said "these are not just new lavatories, this is the start of a new beginning for the Market Regeneration" 

Featuring Lamborghini yellow cubicles with Ferrari red doors, these loos cannot fail to impress!  Even the wall tiles start off blue near the ground and fade into a sunny yellow then white to echo the river on a sunny day.

The next phase of the Market Regeneration will include several new small shops and has already been submitted to SHDC's planning department.  Robert Seymour and Helen Needham worked hard with Cllr Dave Cawley and the Town Council to make these probably the best loos in the West Country?

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

3.   Trade Talk

Are you are a business in Dartmouth? now is the time to check your details on the three major Dartmouth tourism websites.  We recently checked to see who was advertising where and were amazed that so many advertisers were paying to be on websites and had old information, old pictures, and worse still links to websites and e-mail that simply did not work.  Try all three, see if you are there, click on your website link, does it work?  And finally, go back to where you are advertising, click to send yourself an e-mail, and see if you get it in your inbox within a few minutes?  Talking about e-mail, did you know that many potential customers expect a reply to an enquiry about booking accommodation within 2 hours, after that time they will get bored and try elsewhere, and that might not even be Dartmouth.  So consider checking and dealing with your e-mails frequently?
