1.  Happy New Year


New Year in Dartmouth is truly legendary and this year was no exception!  It was a bit cold so we didn't stray too far.  Are you in these photos?  do you know anyone in these photos?  Did we take your photo and it isn't here?

We would like to thank Nigel Way of The Royal Castle Hotel for a fun evening!


2.  Snow White


For years the Dartmouth dot TV crew have dreamed of taking a set of photographs of snow in Dartmouth, and yesterday their dream came true!  Here are just some of the "Dartmouth in Snow" photos!

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

3.   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 possible.”

Registration forms are available by calling into the Flavel Centre in Dartmouth or emailing by clicking here.


4.   A dip in the river

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 to friends.


5.   Small News

Special draw at the Royal Castle Hotel on Sunday 14th March 2010. The winner will receive a weeks holiday on Oboe D'Amore, a beautiful Dufour 485 Grande Large sailing boat, in the Caribbean.  A draw ticket is free with all accommodation booked before New Year's Eve.  Tickets are also on sale from reception for £20.00 each. £5.00 for each ticket sold will be donated to Meningitis UK.

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? 

  • 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 !
