Its almost Christmas and Daisy

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"

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!
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
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.
To see the website for the Angélique

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
