1.  Cinderella

Its almost Christmas and Daisy the Pantomime Cow arrives into Dartmouth for final rehearsals for Dartmouth Players production of Cinderella.

Dartmouth Players are delighted that Daisy has accepted the role in this year's production, Bill Hunt the Producer of Cinderella says " The whole cast are looking forward to working with Daisy who comes to Dartmouth direct from appearing in London's West End. Daisy's pedigree and professional experience will inevitably motivate the whole cast to rise to her exacting standards"

The Dartmouth dot TV crew attended the dress rehearsal to bring you these photographs.  Everyone will love this pantomime and with or without children you will laugh and wonder why you haven't been before, it's that good!  Pop into The Flavel to buy your tickets now!


2.  The "New" Angel  -  Angélique

In January 2011 The 10 in 8 Fine Dining Group will rename the Michelin-starred restaurant as “Angélique”. When the group acquired The New Angel, Alan Murchison announced their intention to revitalize and re-establish it as one of the UK’s original fine dining destinations. The group employed the imagination of the residents of Dartmouth to inspire the new name and Mr Murchison said “we were delighted with the hundreds of ideas that we were presented with and are really pleased with this new name”

Richard Pursey, Chairman of 10 in 8, said on announcing the name this week “Angélique has obvious origins to the restaurant’s past but also has a more subtle link to the fine dining industry as Angélique is a type of herb. We all feel this new name is fitting and continues with the French theme of our other restaurants including the Michelin-starred La Bécasse, L’ortolan and Paris House. Angélique and its new brand and logo will appear for the first time at a grand opening on the 13th January 2011.

4.   Snow White?

We were inundated with congratulations about our early morning "Dartmouth in Snow" photographs, click here if you missed them.  Within a few minutes drive Dartmouth has two beaches, so on Saturday before the gritters appeared the Dartmouth dot TV crew set out to capture Blackpool Sands and Slapton in the snow.  Later the sun came out and we got some good shots in Dartmouth under the winter sun.

  • Councillor Dave Cawley reports:  After nearly six years of hard work full council finally approved the Market Regeneration project and the contract was awarded to local builders RC Pillar.  Six new vibrant shops will bring new customers into the ancient market.  A government grant of £95K really helped the project.  As well as the six new shops a Community Café is being created to allow any local groups to have a coffee morning or even a full blown lunch of their own.  Meetings have already been scheduled with the Fatstock Show organisers and both old and new tenants to make sure everyone is happy as work gets underway.  Most of the work is expected to be completed around Easter time.
