Dartmouth, and yesterday their dream came true! Here
are just some of the "Dartmouth in Snow" photos!

Dartmouth’s Search for Talent continues
The search is on to find the
next star performer in the second Dartmouth’s Got Talent
quest. The call has gone out for budding performers,
musicians, dancers and performers to sign up for an audition
in the next Dartmouth’s Got Talent Quest. As
part of the Dart Music Festival quest organisers have opened
registrations for auditions, the first of which will be held
on January 31st, with the possibility of a further audition
on 7 February. The final judging will be held on Saturday 20
February, 2010 at the Flavel.
Di Lyon, Committee member of the Dart Music Festival
Dartmouth, said: “Last year’s quest attracted many entries
and proved highly popular for entertainers of all ages. For
this reason we decided to hold another quest and to provide
two categories of entry: There will be a category for young
talent up to the age of 11yrs, and a separate category for
performers over the age of 11. “It’s a great opportunity for
budding performers to gain experience and confidence in
performing before an audience. Last year’s finalists agreed
that it was a worthwhile experience to perform in front of a
home audience and to have the very positive support and
encouragement from the judges.
“This year’s quest is not to be missed and the prize will
once again be the opportunity to perform at the opening of
the 2010 Dartmouth Music Festival.” Holly Cosgrove,
winner of the first Dartmouth’s Got Talent Quest in 2009,
has gone on to win the Torbay’s Got Talent Quest and is
currently appearing at the Babbacombe Theatre in the
production of the Christmas Cracker. Holly will be
performing at the finals of Dartmouth’s Got Talent in
February. Di Lyon added: “Registration for auditions will
close on 8th January, 2010 so I would urge all the
undiscovered talent in the area to register as soon as
Registration forms are available by calling into the Flavel
Centre in Dartmouth or emailing by

These hardy souls took the
plunge for Dartmouth Caring by having a swim in Bayards Cove
on New Years Day. Despite nursing fuzzy heads, the
Dartmouth dot TV crew racked up, had a mug of soup, cheered
them on, sponsored Tracy Rowe and had a good time chatting

The dawn of another decade.
10 years ago we were all worrying about Y2K and would our
Microsoft computers move seamlessly into the next century.
10 years ago Dartmouth Cottages opened its doors and became
the first Dartmouth Self Catering Agency to achieve 100% ETC
accreditation. 10 years ago Foss Street had a
tobacconist. So what do the next 10 years hold for
Dartmouth dot TV may
be working closely with the Tourist Information Centre
bringing an even more co-ordinated marketing force.
The Old Market will
be regenerated with glass and wood giving opportunities
for the smaller and more unique shops to thrive.
We hope to have low
cost industrial units at the top of the hill for start
up businesses, and not simply for storage.
Maybe a radical new
in-town car park that offends no one
But most importantly
we will all strive to Keep Dartmouth Special !
