1.  Fathers' Day Adventure

Flip Williams reports: Treat Dad to a Canoe Adventure this Father's Day, Sunday 19 June!  1300 from Tuckenhay, return by 1800. Bring a picnic. Seats £20 adult,  U-16 £17. Booking 01803 865301  Or maybe in a few weeks time, but book now.

The Voyager canoe, aka Voyageur, is big and strong and easy to use. It's a passenger-propelled zero-emission waterbus evolved from the trade canoes of the Canadian North West Frontier. Each comes with steersman-guide, and full canoeing equipment is included.

The canoes go from and to the slipway beside the friendly Maltsters Arms at Tuckenhay which lies at the head of sheltered Bow Creek on the west bank of the River Dart in South Devon halfway between Dartmouth and Totnes. Outings are 4-5 hours including riverside stops for ice creams and picnic.  Click here for more.


2.  Africa United

Anything is possible…’ This co-production between the United Kingdom, Rwanda and South Africa is a cheerful, good-natured road movie in which three Rwandan school kids take a wrong turning when heading to Kigali to audition for a warm-up act at the 2010 World Cup.. Using a sack load of ingenuity (and a World Cup wall chart for a map), our pint-sized protagonists set off through the endless horizons of Africa in pursuit of an unlikely dream. And as they walk they gather a tribe - a ragamuffin team - of broken and brilliant characters who help them negotiate a way through a series of glorious, dangerous, hilarious and often bizarre situations, as well as the joy, laughter and hope - 'the ubuntu' - that comes from making an incredible journey together.

This film is on tonight at the Guildhall at 7.30pm. Guest tickets can be purchased on the night of the screening at The Windjammer pub in Victoria Road, Dartmouth for £3.60 per film, between 7.00 – 7.25pm. New members can join at the door on any screening night. For further information contact: Clive Osborne on 079-6802-6449
