500 Days of Summer Tonight
Director: Mark Webb Actors:
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel 95 minutes
Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn't… "This
is a story of boy meets girl", begins the wry, probing
narrator of 500 Days Of Summer, and with that the film takes
off at breakneck speed into a funny, true-to-life and unique
dissection of the unruly and unpredictable year-and-a-half
of one young man's no-holds-barred love affair.
The film also received numerous
awards and nominations; including Scott Neustadter and
Michael H. Weber receiving the 2009 Satellite Award for Best
Original Screenplay and the Independent Spirit Award for
Best Screenplay. Notable nominations included two at the
67th Golden Globe Awards, for Best Picture (Musical or
Comedy), and a nomination for Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Best
Actor (Musical or Comedy).
Films are screened at The Guildhall, Victoria Road,
Dartmouth. The bar is open from 7.30pm and the films start
approx. 8pm. Guest tickets are available on the night for
£3.50 each from “The Windjammer” Victoria Road between

Cream tea and fish & chips!
Last Friday evening a group of
Dartmouth parishioners filled the 2 Dittisham ferries and
headed up river to partake of a fish and chip supper.
The outing was organised by David Oldbury and a thoroughly
good time was had by all, especially as the weather was so
good. In fact the ferries were oversubscribed and the
Dartmouth dot tv crew took a couple of guests in our own
Last week we told you about the
Macmillan Cancer Support Cream Tea at Ash House Farm.
What perfect summer weather we had for this traditional
English event. Sue Murray reports 'So many people
turned up we sold every ticket plus extras! In the end we've
raised £900.29 which is fantastic, plus Bruckners gave the
cream which is amazing.' Thanks to all the helpers and
those who went along and of course Jane and Roger Davenport
for hosting it.

College Officer Cadets help
Britannia Royal Naval College
Officer Cadets help Kingswear Primary School build a garden.
What a difference a day makes ! Well actually, what a
difference 20 officer cadets and one day made when they
crossed the river on Saturday, June 5th to help Kingswear
Primary School create a garden from scratch in a field.
The village primary school, perched on the hillside in the
middle of Kingswear, does not have a lot of land around it.
However, the owners of Fountain Violet Farm at the top of
the village, Edward and Emma Jones, have given the school a
sizeable corner of a field to develop as an outdoor learning
space and in part of this space the school wants to
establish a garden. The school was able to provide a plan,
tools and materials but needed the manpower to achieve this
This was why on Saturday, as part of the Naval College
Outreach Programme, the officer cadets of Vanguard Division,
led by Young Officer in Charge, Sub-Lieutenant Scott Lewis,
climbed to the top of Mount Ridley Hill and spent all day
digging, sawing and hammering. In return three school
governors and their families provided a camp fire, sausages,
cakes and the odd suggestion. Once tasked the cadets needed
little guidance however and proved themselves exceptionally
capable, well motivated and enthusiastic.
The Outreach Programme helps to build links with the local
community, encourages team-building and prepares cadets for
tasks such as disaster relief work. It proved a very
enjoyable day for all those involved. The cadets were lots
of fun though always extremely well mannered. The 20 by 8
metre garden is not yet complete but is now well under way.
The area is fenced and rabbit-proof and over half the raised
beds and paths are in place. By the end of day the cadets
had achieved far more than expected and had earned not just
the school’s gratitude but also the right to name the
garden. At the request of Vanguard Division, Kingswear
Primary School’s Vanguarden was born !
Kingswear Primary School is now appealing for donations of
garden items such as child-sized wellington boots, garden
tools and gloves, kneeling pads and flower and vegetable
seeds. Please contact the school on 01803 752356 or phone
Gill Davies on 01803 752613.
