1.  Ladies who lunch  : Jewellery Inspirations - Saturday 19th November 2011 at 10.00am

Rowena Moore reports: We are delighted to invite guests to join us for an exciting Jewellery Inspiration Ladies Lunch event. Following a relaxing welcome by the team at Restaurant Angelique, Lisa & Tania, founders of Magpie Vintage Jewellery will lead a fun and inspiring workshop during which time you can view and try on the superb designs, worn by celebrities, royalty and renowned stylists and even perhaps treat yourself! This is also an ideal opportunity to find the perfect gift for those “hard to buy for” friends or relatives! The contemporary designs combine a love of Victorian opulence and the timeless quality of antique and vintage materials reworked with silver to form eclectic one off wearable pieces.  Click here or on the jewellery image for more.

2.  A different view of South Devon AONB

The new AONB ( Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty)  Coast &Countryside events programme Nov 11 – April 12 is now available from the Dartmouth Tourist Information Centre. The theme is focussed on seeing the protected landscape from a variety of viewpoints, maybe an unusual location, or through a different person’s eyes. Events in 2011 include farm walks, estuary walks, crab dressing, surfing, canoeing and a hedgerow Christmas.

The events will help participants understand more about the landscape of the AONB and what it means to live, work and play in the area. Specific events led by local experts will look at food from the landscape, some will look at how time has shaped the landscape and others will examine different ways of mapping the landscape recording places and journeys. Many of these events are suitable for family participation.

The programme also includes the Annual Open Forum being held at Kingsbridge Community College on Tuesday 29th November with keynote speaker TV presenter and Naturalist Nick Baker with representation from the RSPB and a local farmer focussing on how we can do better for wildlife in the next 50 years.  Click here for more.

3.   Are you in a “not-spot"?

We have all seen the massive move to on-line trading, banking and e-commerce. Yet there are many areas in the South Hams that just can’t get broadband or fast enough connections to join the digital age. In fact more than 20% of us are getting less than 2 megabits and the majority less than 6 megabits. Tooway Satellite Broadband solves this problem. The KA-SAT launched last December is a powerful new satellite designed for delivering high-bandwidth services to users beyond range of ground based cabled networks. The new-generation Tooway™ connects your computer via the satellite to a super fast link on main internet backbone. A single satellite mini-dish and a set-top-box (modem) are all you need; the satellite broadband service is available everywhere in Europe with no regional discrimination, and you don't need a phone line! Speeds are determined by you, and range from 6 to 10 megabits, so those of you who live in a“not-spot” can now enjoy speeds faster than those who are in town. Actionwest has taken on Tooway Satellite Broadband, and can supply and install all that is necessary for you and your business to get on-line. So now there is no reason why everyone can’t enjoy the beauty of the South Hams and fast internet!

Packages start at £24.99 inc VAT per month. Call ActionWest at Kingsbidge on 01548 856 696
