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
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.

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
